Jan. 12, 1919

Dear Mother,
As it has been two or three days that I have been in Coblenz I will let you know that I am OK. Just got out of the hospital. I was there 5 days. My ears were bad for some time but they are all right now. I will be back to the Co. in a day or so. This is sure a fine city. Where did Pa come from? Was it anywhere near the Rhine? Let me know. I have been getting the DeKalb paper all right but I have not had a letter from you or Kate in three weeks, so do not forget that I am over here yet. This pen is sure no good but I hope it will do until I get back there and give someone hell. There was a lot of that work given to the soldiers

in their Xmas boxes but next year there will be no war, I hope. Say ma were my ears all right when I was a kid or were they on the bum. I have been looking for the 33 Div. here but can’t find them. I have looked for them every day this week but can’t find them. We got paid off in German marks. That is the same as $25 in our wages. If the marks go down the Amex soldiers will be out of luck so you can see the German people are not the only ones to loose. We will be with them. Well this is all for this time. Hope you are well.

Your son Glen Kaiser
Hdq. Co. 127 Inf.
Amex E.F.
A.P.O. 734
