August 10th, 1918
Dear Mother and Father:
Your letter of July 8th received saying that Ed had gone to Camp Kearny. What
are Mr. & Mrs. Brown doing? The war news is extra good today. Suppose you
are all excited over it at home. I am still on duty in contagion. Nothing to write.
You can get more news from Harold Burnes' letters (printed in the papers) than
you can from mine.
