earnest portrayal of his i.per-iewi-H

very loud voice, which made it

hall to hear him distinctly.

"France, August 15, 1918.
Arrived here safely without any
trouble and am feeling fine. This
is a very interesting country and
you woulu like it as well as I do.
Crooked, narrow, cobbled streets
and all cement buildings. Wood
is, and always has been, very
scarce here. 1 don't get many
opportunities to see the city, but
what I did see was very interest
ing. Ever; other shop is a wine,
shop and I imagine wine is very
cheap; everything else is very
high though. We get our tobacco
and cigarettes from the govern
ment commissary very cheap
cheaper 1 believe than you could
buy them wholesale at home; also,
tobacco is issued to us with, our
rations. We get plenty to eat,
but of course there isn't much
variety mostly corned beef and
beans. I have been eating four
meals a day lately; my fourth one
at eleven at night. It is colder
here than in New York and ail
our clothing, with the exception
of underclothing, is woolan.
Haven't seen a person so far
that 1 knew, although a good
many of my friends are over here.
We are resting now after our trip
across, but don't want to stay
here long. I get tired of a camp
quickly I think everyone does
and like to be on the move.
There isn't a great deal I can
tell you in my letters these days,
nut none vou win uesausiieu wuu
well and happy."
