Somewhere in France, 8/12/1918

Somewhere in France

August 12th, 1918

Dear Brother John:

I received your letter some time ago but am sorry to say that I could not of answered sooner.  Of course John you realize how hard it is at times for me to write all my folks, relatives, and friends, but somehow I have been fortunate and have been able to write both Madaline and Anna almost everyday.  Isn’t it wonderful the way the Yankee Boys are treating the Huns.  Well it’s the good old Yankee blood and spirit.  It is needless for me to try and tell you any war news and I know the N.Y. papers furnish you with more news than what we boys get here.  John, my ambitions are great and many. Now that I have the experience I think I can show what stuff I am made of.  We are at our rest camp now and in a few moments I can see where I am forced to go out and get rations for the evening although its only about fifteen minutes of work.

Guess I will close now John will write soon again with love and kisses to you all, I am.

Affectionately

Joe

PS:  Did you receive my photo and long letter in which I told you everything since I left the states.
