"Somewhere in France"
Nov. 14, 1918
Your letter and papers came yesterday also a letter from Eliza and I felt pretty
good. I hope papa's shoulder is better. I just finished a letter to Beth. I guess she
have some good times there. How is the calf getting along and have you sold the
pigs yet. I guess you feel pretty good as the war is over. The French people sure
are happy now and every one that I see says "lagarre finis tri bon" and I say "wee
tribon". Lagarre means the war and tribon is very good. The boys went wild and
began shooting their guns with joy and we sure feel that the Huns got what they
needed and it was Uncle Sam that did it. It is gettting pretty cold so I will close
hoping to get another letter soon.
From your son
