My dear Father:
Just a few lines to let you know that I am well and am thinking or you. We keep pretty busy these day; lots of studying and firing. We expired hundreds of rounds of ammunitions daily and I am becoming quite an accurate shot with the light machine gun and the Automatic pistol. We finish one course a week from Saturday and will probably spend a few days in the front lines observing before returning to our organizations. Have kept remarkably well and have gained several pounds. Do hope you are taking care of yourself and are not working too hard. Please don't for my sake. I am very anxiousto hear from home and to know how you all are getting by
You must not count too much on what the paper say about the present conditions. Most of the news is camouflauged and the Germans haven't lost the number of men the reports sugests. The allies problem is almost as large- The situation has been very grave and continues to at the present time — I want you to take a few moments off to write me. Please! Not a word have I heared since leacing the States.
Best love of all-
Love to Mother and Sarah. Take good care of them for me.
