Camp Bartlett, Westfield Mass. 8/25/1917

Dear Em.


They are busting us right and left. There are only twenty men left. The captain, 1st and 2nd Lieuts are gone and the Lord only knows what is to become of the rest of us. Im writing this to stop you from sending any mail until I find out just where Im going. I might go to Maine, N.H., Conn., R.I. or any place they happen to send me. The 8th Regiment is no more. Ill write soon and tell you more.
