Somewhere in France
June 14, 1918
Dear sister and pa.
After going through a hard stiff hike and nothing to do but write and wash. I am kept continually on the go but am satisfied as long as I can get enough sleep and eats. I know you are all worrying and thinking of me at all times and praying for my safe return but I feel your prayers will not go unanswered. Of course dear sister I am in a more dangerous position than when I where in the states but you must consider that I know more now about the trench welfare and also the chances of safety. The war over hear from what I have been told from men that have been through the mill is very much safer than it were years ago.
I cannot go into details regarding where we boys are billeting or what is going on in this section but what I can say is that we are quite some distance from the front. My thoughts of home many a times makes me feel bad but I always think of the bright sides. Although I really do not know whether you are all well but I always make myself believe you all are feeling fine. My health and condition is good and am if I say it myself ready to go further into this war. Tell pa that his boy will be home before long.
Must close now with love + kisses to you all.
Your loving brother
