Camp Cotton, Texas 9/16/1916

Dear Em,

 

We were issued overcoats and sweaters today and beleive me we will need them mornings for every body was just about froze this morning. The sun was very hot today which felt just like standing in front of a stove. Im sorry I cant do my part by writing, but as Ive said before Im losing the nack, and I be home and tell you all about it soon.

 

We feel pretty sure that we will start next week. I am fine, so is the weather.

 

 

Dear Lena.

 

All is well. Fine weather. Good eats (plenty of drilling) lots of sleep. And then I cant get fat. Hopeless case.

 

Sam
