Dear Sister:—

I received your letter (mailed Mar 20) today. It is quite Cold and snowing a little today so I hvae been sitting around by a nice warm fire all day reading a magazine all though the time seems monotonous we have very comfortable quarters such as we never had in France, so I guess we had not ought to complain. I went to a picture show last night and saw “William S. Hart in one of his famous wild west plays “The Bargain,” taken in Arizona hills and canyons very much resembling the country around Home, where you and “Augusta” and myself went on a picnic nearly five years ago. You perhaps will wonder at my mentioning this incident, but it happened to Spring into my mind, while deeply interested in a picture of such a country as Southwestern United States, which is home sweet home to me. I had a letter from Joe a few days ago stating that he expected to leave France for the United States on the 20th so I guess before you get this letter you will have heard of his arrival. Expect he will be home befor long as his foot was in such a shape as to be in D. Class. You spoke of me having my picture taken, well I have been intending to but have just neglected it. Say what every you do take good care of my junk that I left in my trunk when I left Calif. I have lots of pictures and post cards among other things that will be very valuable to me as relics of past years.

When? I get discharged I intend to come out there and visit for a while before settling down to something usefull. A good many of our supplys are now coming by way of Rotterdam Holland but I don’t know if we will embark from there when we go home or not. Well as this leaves me well but no much news to write will cut this short for now with love and best wishes to all your Brother
