Letter from Otto Bernanrd Sells, Company B, 127th Infantry, 32nd Division to his parents in Oshkosh, WI. April 10, 1918 France Dear Mother & all, Just a few lines to let you know I' in the best of health hoping it will find you all the same. We moved to a new camp. It sure is a bum place, no warmer & very little to drink. We have seen a lot of this country. We bought some swell cheese for dinner for a frank & a half a cake & the best milk I've ever drank for six cents a canteen & cup full. I've been a little slow writing but have been to busy. Mail came in today but none for me. I've volunteered to be a scout. So will know if they picked me this afternoon & is they do will let you know if I stay with the Co. or go with some body else. It has rained here the last two weeks & is trying to clear up today. Some more of our boys are with us. Close with Love, Son O.B.S. OK Douglas ____ 2nd._____
