All these French people are just as polite and congenial as they can be and its such a pity we can't understand each other. At one town where we were billeted not long ago it happened thai we got there after dark and could n't do much picking and choosing. Cheatham scouted around and found a small-sized wagon body, under a shed and he. Reginald Alston and I soon made a home of it.

We are a buncr of boys from Frank lin County who decided that maybe you would be interested in wliat wo have to say, aboutrwhat we know about the happenings "Somewhere in France." Of course this letter will not con tain as much ^ one we might write you later. We will take it for granted that you know we haven't seeii any any real service at the front yet. We are just getting our "oversea" training v.iiich will enable us to do our bit in licking the Germans proper.

Wj don't know just when we will got there but wiien we do we will kc?p the Germans guessing all the time. The boys up there nov,* are almost astonishing the Whole world, making records such as the world has never known before. Taking in con \tern1 ion the length of time we have been prepjarlti? for this strusMc and ci course we don't expect to let them surpass us in anything.

I will sr.y right here in behalf of the U. S. soldiers in France. The people back home ought to write more often than they do. Perhaps yoif will say, "well. I have no relatives over there, there fore it Isn't neccssary for me to write," that may be true, but.y.,j r.iay have a friend, drop him a few lines cf encour agement some day when you are not busy, n wltl do him more good than hundreds of dollars when he gets back. , Just a little Joke on one of us boys. This morning as we sat up on a hill side planning this letter, all at once we heard an awful ndlse behind us, and looking around what should we see but a big "French Bull," coming towards us bellowing, at the same time T happened to notice a barbed wire fence between us and him and kept my seat, while the Sgt. had his (45) Colt, remained also, but you ought to h*re seen old O. O. S. pro down that hillside, as heavy a8 he Is. P. S. Thought I would have gotten a few words in above letter but didn't gpet back in time. Sgt. Hicks Ij some brave fellow. I always feel safe when with him. You should heve seen him a few days ago advancing on a neat of yellow Jackets. Believe lie gave all kinds of commands but the yellow boys continued to advance and poor Sgt. dropped his 46 and looked for a dug out. Now this is only half of the sior;.. .we'll tell the rest when we all get lr.uek. My friend Massey has a record too. but will leave It for next Ume.

Dear Ed'tor: Just at this time, as I read the news, I have derided to write a Tew [lines back to my home pi.per. It is (Indeed a great privilege to be In ser vice in such a great cause and have .the opportunity of writing back home. iSomc people are about to thtink that they are weeding the last rows of hard ships, and they may be. but there are many more battles to b? fought both in personal combattance and in hard ships of civilian life. The people back home should not be too anxious for peace as to think that the President should make it on easy terms. The papers of the Allied nations declare most emphatically that Germany is l*ing when she says she wants peace. Germany wants a holdup where she can recuperate and ? one out again two fold in strength Wilson nor any of the Allied powers arc wilfTncr to sign any peace term, that will give any peace disturbing na tion the power to ever rule or even try again.
