Camp Bartlett, Westfield Mass. 8/23/1917

Dear Em.


Well here we are out here in Westfield and the Lord only knows what is to become of us. Everything is very uncurtain. They are crouding about every soldier in N.E. in here. The Maine troops are a wonderful body of men. There will soon be 250 men to each company. Some company. I told Lil to call and tell you that we would leave Lynnfield, the reason being that I was afraid Id never get you on the phone. Something will be doing very soon I think. Im feeling fine and hope this will find you the same.

Address 8th Inf M.N.G. Westfield.

  1. What a wonderful blog, I just happened upon it while doing research. I have recently launched my own blog which republishes the entries (in Italian and English) of a diary written by my Italian grandfather who was deported to Germany as a forced laborer during WWII.
    It’s so important to share these documents so that history is not forgotten!
