Did one of these 200
letters come to you?
A DUSTY courier slid off his motor-cycle at the big double hut
in a French town and tramped up to the canteen. .
" Got a note for the secretary from my commanding officer'
he said. He handed a piece of paper across the counter to a smiling
This is tlie note the Secretary read:
We landed here three days agomilea from anywhere
Can you send us some supplies, especially writing
paper? This is the first chance the boys have had
to write home and we have no paper to give them.
The older man looked up and grinned
"Got you away off in the wood3, have they?
"I'll say they have!"
"Can you carry anything?
"All you'll give me!"
From the shelves the secretary took big packages of paper and
"Too much?" He asked.
"It will be g;one ten minutes after I get back I " said the boy.
"Tonight," the secretary went on, 'Til drive out a truck
with more supplies and a man to stay with you. And tell the boy3
that if their letters are finished, I'll bring them back with me tonight,
and get them into the mails."
An hour later that motor-cyclist whizzed into camp, loaded
down with writing paper, and in ten minutes letters were being
written to 200 American homes.
The United War "Work organizations know what letters mean
to American soldiers. They know that fighters want to get letters
and want to write letters.
So in every hut and on every ship your boys find writing paper,
envelopes, ink, pens and pencils, and tables where they can get off by
themselves and tell the folks back home how things are going.
Millions of sheets are given away free every week to American
boys overseas. That is why the letters you get from your boy are
written on the stationery of one of these organizations. It is one of
the plans to bridge the Atlantic, Help keep the letters coming !
