Letter From Siberia (Miller)

Siberia, March 17, 1919

Dear Mother:

It has been quite a while since I have heard from you. I will write a few lines tonight to let you know that I am well and feeling fine. We are having good weather here now. We didn’t drill much during the winter but have started to drill again now.

How is everything going on back there? I got a letter from Mabel and one from Lillie not long ago, but don’t know when I will answer there is nothing to write about.

I just came off from guard yesterday, we are on about once every fifteen days.

I expect Archie will be home before long. That was a pretty good letter he had in the paper.

These people live on sunflower seeds mostly; when they can’t get meat to make soup they put it in a bowl and each one gets a spoon and they all wade in.

Well that is all I can think of just now, so will have to quit. Don’t worry if you don’t hear from me very often because I am not much on the writing and there is nothing to write about. Answer soon.

Pvt. Elbert Miller,
Co. C. 27th Inf. A. E. F., Siberia,
care Depot Quartermaster, San Francisco, Calif.
