the streets are very narrow and all paved with stones. There is not a wooden house in France I guess I have not seen one since I have been here. If Robert ^Bean^ would write to the Gillett Safty Razor, he could get all the emblems and marks of officers in the U.S. Army and Navy. We often see German prisoners at work around in different places, and they seem glad to be prisoners. The waggons are drawn by the yoke of oxen instead of horses and Autos are very scarce. We have just been issued some smoking tobacco, but my supply is no where near gone yet. Give my best wishes to all my brothers and sister. Best regards to Happy and Bill. I will close with Love to you all.

Your son with the Old Glory over seas
