Somewhere in France

Dear Mother:–

It is a fine summer night just ideal and we are further away from the roar of the guns.

Use christian men are getting closer together one in the hut with me and another one about 3 huts away so we can get to gether often, all the Hazenmore boys are with me, I just wrote a letter for a boy who can’t read and write to his mother in Newfoundland we have a swimming pool to go into now running water
