Dear Pat,

  Just a line hoping you and Mary are

quite well. I would have answered your letter

last week only we got our photo taken and they

were to be ready on Monday last but they did

not come untill saturday. they are not very

good but I will get one taken by myself soon

  I do not know if you will notice my mostash

it is a nusence. but you have to let it grow

if you shave it off you are lible to get 4 days C. B.

  I am in very good health and am

beging to like the training we start on Mus

keting on Monday. it is very interesting & after

that we will go on bayonet fighting. They are

very pictular about that as there is a lot

of that done at the front just now. I am

glad we are done with squad drill because

if we were kept at it much longer I think

it would have killed some of us. You can

see by the card they are a fragile lot.
