Hdq. Co 103rd U.S. Inf.


Dear Folks.


Received your letters of last and as I have a little time Im going to answer them. I just dropped a card for Pa lest than a half hour ago saying I hadn’t heard from you. This will correct me.


Im glad you had such a good time these last two weeks and wish it was only starting. Here Ive started a letter and as much to say as time to say it in, no more. Tell Burt I got his letter also and was very glad to hear from him.


It is getting kind of winterish these days, and I can even feel the night air cooling now. Tomorrow is inspection and Ive got to clean up for it. Im in the spy department of the 103rd pretty soft job now, but when I find out what Ill have to know probably it wont seem so easy.


Well Lena, Em, and Mary (also Burt) this is to let you know I got your letters, and as it is about all I have to say Ill close. Yours truly,



XX Mary
