[The top portion of this letter is missing]

I am getting quite used to the sound of the guns which some times is a continuous roar for hours. There are no women or children this near the front. There is not much to spend money for. I have deposited 30 dollars with the pay master since I came over here, this I will get when discharged

I will inquire about my insurance, for I think they would certainly send you a policy or some thing to show for it. The A.E.F publishes a weekly paper over here I am haveing it sent to you. I guess this will be all for this time. Answer soon with love to all the folks. Your son
