Somewhere in France, 6/9/1918

Sunday, June 9th, 1918

Dear Sister Madaline:

Today being Sunday and nothing to do I went to church.  The sermon was in french but it was similar or like the American way.  You don’t realize how hard it is for me to sit down and write as their are things that I would like to write you but of course the censor prevents me from doing so.

I am progressing rather slow with my french but will learn sometime I hope.  The french language is much easier to learn than the changing of their money.  Every American dollar that we boys exchange in this town we loss about ten cents.  One franc is about eighteen cents and we get five francs for our dollars so you see we get only ninety cents.

Must close now with love to you all.

Your Brother

Joe
