Evacuation Hospital No. 7 at Chateau Montanglaust, 8/13/1918

Chateau Montanglaust

Dear Em,


"American Nurse" by Baldridge, 1918

Ive been transferred to another hospital and getting along very nicely now, getting very good treatment. My stumack must have got in pretty bad shape alright to have put me in a hospital all this time. There are quite a few cases of this nature though some not getting along as good as I am. The nurses are very pleasant here and try to do all they can for us. I was in hopes of being able to join the company again from the field hospital but the doc said no so here I am. I feel fine today and in high hopes of getting kicked out to find my company very soon.


Ive received no mail since long before entering the hospital and don’t expect to until I get back to the company for they don’t know where I am and cant send it. The Y.M.C.A. man just came around and gave us a sack of Bull and this writing paper both coming in very handy. Gee I wish I could get ahold of the mail that Im pretty sure must be waiting for me where the company is. I wish I had something to say but it’s the same old story. If I had some of your letters I might fill this paper up a little by answering some of them.


Well Ill be out of this pretty soon and then watch out for mail. I hope this finds you all well and rest assured that by the time this reaches you I will have been with my company some time. Give my regards to all, I remain



Samuel E. Avery Hdq. Co. 103rd Inf.

  1. I recently acquired a dog tag of one of the medical doctors at the Evac Hospital mentioned above. Thought it may be of some interest to you!


  2. Hello,

    My father was a Sargent in the medial corps at this hospital from June of 1918 until Spring of 1919, I have a complete set of letters from his time there (he wrote to his mother every Sunday). I am looking to share them as they are both complete and very descriptive of life at the hospital and travelling and meeting people in the area. Feel free to email me if you or someone else would be interested in seeing them or you have a suggestion of what I could do with them.
