Somewhere in France
Oct. 25th, 1918
Mr. and Mrs. J. N. Danielson
Dearest Bro. and Family—
Will try to write a few lines to you today and let you know that I am still on earth and very much alive.
Have been on this front just a month now but it seems a year since we moved up here.
Have seen what war is like now and I will say like Sherman said “War is hell,” only more so.
Have seen many prisoners go by, and many wounded but those dough boys never make a whimper as they come by, some walking, others riding in ambulances and big trucks.
