poetry that was written by a comrade
Well I have not much to write
but will send you some poetry and a
few lines. Mother I know very well
what your and Dad's opinion of a
soldier In time of peace was. Now
your opinion Is very similar to the
one that nine tenths of the civilian
have. But I will endeavor to try
and give you a new light. Now if
It hadn't been for the regular army
we would have been 'n a bad pinch.

life in time of peace was easy and
that he was no good Is very wrong
