A Letter KcceiTed From Lieut, Hill,
As a Christmas present to Mr.
W J Hill and family a good, in-
Edward Hill. . Though his fetter
was a pleasure it is not good
j news to know that he has been
on the firing line and is not faring
as well as do some soldiers.
His letter was dated the 14th
of last month. He wrote of
having been detailed with forty
men to guard the hospital corps,
and how the bullets would come
whizzing about them. They
were lying in trenches of mud
and had no changes of clothing.
As stated in his other letter it
continues to rain. He carries
nothing but a few morsels to
eat, a pistol and his field glasses.
1 He is now realizing what the life !
of a soldier is.
