Dear sister Madaline:

After resting all day yesterday I am now ready to do my day’s work.  The work isn’t half bad that is it isn’t hard nor do we have long hours.  The weather in the past few days are great and well is it appreciated by us boys.  In order that I might get my mail sooner we have been advised to add to our old address A.P.O. 748.  So here after if you will dear sister just add same to my old address.  Isn’t it great the way the Yankee boys are treating the Huns.  Well its the Yankee blood and spirit.  Guess I have said about all I know so I will close.  Will write again tomorrow.  Lots of love and kisses to you all.

I am

Your Brother


My address is:

Corporal Joseph Maus

Co. A. 105 U.S. Inf.
