On active service with the American Expeditionary Force
Oct. 29, 1918
Just a line or two to let you know I am here and going to stay until this war is over and that will not be long. I got a letter from Ma and Anna last week and sure was glad to get them. Well it is some colder here then it was but not so bad. We will have a thought it all right. I am glad that Al is so lucky and hopes that he gets a good job out of it. Is hard for me to write. Not that I do not get the time but you know how it is so do not look for a letter until you get it. Ha, Ha. We are going to get some clothes today so that will be fine. Some of the boys are in pairs on a weeks leave. I hope I will be next.
Anna said that Will is getting better so he will soon be home and help her get along but I think if he never came back it would be soon enough for me. How about you? Ma said she had a lot of fruit can this year. That is fine and I hope that I get home in time to help eat some of it before it is all gone. I het all I want to eat but it is not like that you know. I sent home a $50 bond and going to send $100 as soon as I can get to a post office. How are all of you this year? Have any of you been sick? I have been lucky so far and hope it keeps up for a month because the war will be over. I am sure Germany is on her last leg. I hope Floyd is working and doing what is right. I know here will be new Glen when I get as far as that I am now and have been for some time believe me.
Well I am a cook now and when I get back I will get a job from you cooking. Ha, Ha. I am getting about $45 a month so that helps some. I am working with some fine boys. They are like brothers to me. The capt is like a father so that makes me feel like home. Well this is all for this time. Hoping I get a letter from you soon.
