Somewhere in France, 7/8/1918

July 8th 1918

Dear sister Madaline

I hardly think this letter is going to be very long as time is limited and I feel that I am neglecting you if I do not write theirfore I am doing my duty and also keeping my promise.  Our training is still going on but in a hiking manner.  Our name hiking 105 is still with us and much credit must be given us as we certainly do do some hiking.  I am feeling fine and also am having a wonderful time.  Today was a day of rest but just the same I’ve been on the go washing clothes and taking a bath.  I surely enjoy the bath as it was the first good wash since I left the states.  Guess I will close now dear sister with love and kisses to you all.

I am

Your Brother
