Dear Mother,

                              I received your kind

and welcome letter also order and

am glad to hear you and all at

home are well as I am first class.

I have to laugh when I think of

carrots. The man is actually

mad. I am sorry to hear about

Willie Adams. I know it would

set anyone mad to see the terrible

sights. I saw the Dublins in

a bayonet change one day last

week and they simply cut the

Germans up just like paper.

all Irishmen in bayonet charges

simply go raging mad. You

can imagine the roaring of guns

and the clashing of bayonets. It

is terrible but thank God we

are safe and sound. We are in

our new place and it is fine. Only
