From the Soldiers (D. Stebbins)
Oct. 4, 1917.
I have a little time and will try to tell you a little of our life here. Just got through reading the Echo and I see that all the other boys have written you so I decided that it was about time that you hear from us fellows to let the people know that we are still in the land of the living, and we are going to do our share to put the kaiser out of business.
We have been issued all woolen clothes and overcoats, that is nearly everyone in our company.
A week ago we passed in review of Secretary Baker and I see by the paper that we are to pass in review of Vice President Marshall.
Well, Frank, I expect that the next time you hear from us we will be “somewhere in France.”
This leaves us fellows all O.K. and I personally, am feeling fine.
It is very near mess time so I will close with regards to all the boys.
