Some where in France Sept. 19, 1918 Dearest Sister in law, Received your last letter Sept. 17 the one you wrote Aug. 21, and I was very glad to hear from you that you were all enjoying perfect health. So you have heard that I was in the Hospital. Hilda tell the folks that I have not been in the Hospital. This war looks like it going to come to an end, but don't know when it will be, hope it will be soon. Hilda, I get all of your mail you write to me but you know we are busy here at the front. And once we were on our rest camp but a few days after we had to back up and move to the front again. And that was the time I wrote you that fast letter and I hope you got that letter so that you know how I am getting along. So I got a new mule again. I ain't got the old mule no more I got a new mule now. He is a little better than the other one. So you and Phyllis were up home had a 5 weeks vacation hope I could have that here, Phyllis must be a quite a girl already. I wrote to Carly a letter the 26 of Aug. and I hope I hear from him soon and hope he sends me a picture of himself. So you said that Carly is so anxious of going across.
