Somewhere in France

Nov 11 1918

My Dear Mother.

Just a few lines to let you know “Your Boy” is still well and enjoying the best of health.

It is a great comfort to me to know that you are well and comfortable at home.

I have seen old French people coming back to their old homes, all shell torn and destroyed, then seem very happy that they have been spared and are all smiles when they see a bunch of Samies, they wave their hands to them and wish them good Luck.

Uncle Sam is sure doing great big things “overhere” and old Keiser Bill knows it to. he has felt the power of U.S. and is beginning to blame someone else for his failure.
