The French Are As eager to learn our words of greeting is August 81, 191,8�? 595,026.93 we theirs. They even learn our songs. 1 was surprised to see and hear several Little children singing with All their might a Hail Hail the gangs All Here a Etc. They Sang it As we marched by with All the enthusiasm of american lads. It was interesting to watch some of these Little a tots a who probably have fathers and Brothers at the front As they stood by the Road Side and Shook hands and said goodbye As we passed. The children were eager for English books and asked for every one they saw. If any Soldier showed that he had Candy he was besieged immediately by a throng of children with upraised hands. The boys shared with them and seemed to Delight in it. Soon we left this City and marched to our Camp four Long Miles away mostly up Hill. We had our packs of our backs and. The 40 pounds they weighed seemed to increase to a ton with each mile. The red faces stretched necks and Bent backs of the men plodding along reminded one of a great team of oxen Labouring under the Yoke. We finally reached our Camp and were glad enough to pitch our a a dog tents and stretch ourselves upon the ground for a Little rest. X was somewhat surprised to up be As i looked Over the country. The almost total absence of Trees Here and there Are a few ones that have been preserved but for Miles there Are Ito Jae at All. The farms Are Cut up into Small plot measuring about 200 feet deep and 80 feet wide. They Are fenced by Stone Walls covered with Earth and this overgrown with a dense shrubbery. Our next move was to this place. We came by rail. An american is much amused at the French trains when he compares them to those at Home. We did not know what accommodations we were to % have both passenger and cattle cars stood on the track. I was Lucky enough to ride in a passenger car. Every cattle car carries this Well known a card a Thommes 40, Cleveaux a which is to say if men Are to be carried 40 men or if horses 8 horses. The passenger cars Are very Small and shaped very much like Street cars Only higher. They set upon two pairs of Light trucks and consist of Brit five compartments. Each compartment will seat from eight i v ten men. Two doors one on each Side form the exit. There is no aisle running the length of the car nor end doors As in ours. Air brakes and electric lights Are unknown As Well As the other conveniences of american railways the scenery along the route was very Beautiful. Occasionally we would reach a High Point from which we could look far out Over the country. Hills and valleys marked the landscape for Many Miles. Here and there in the valleys were Small villages nestling beside winding streams that came Down from the mountains. All houses were of Stone and whitewashed. These with the intensely Green shrubbery for a Back ground were Well defined in the scene the most conspicuous building being the Church with its tall Steeple. The Village of is right at our Camp. I suppose it is a Type of All French villages. It seems to have grown up without plan or purpose. Most of the buildings Are very old. All of them Are of Stone covered with slate or thatch. There Are very few streets and practically no sidewalks. The streets instead of by ing Laid out so As to guide the traveler appear More a a Maze to confuse him. There is one a lain thoroughfare the Public Ide shops and residences flank it on both sides. There is no residential Section the Homes being connected with the 2x4 shops that line the Street. Almost every other opening is a wine room. The French use this beverage in great quantities a habit which some of our boys rather like and seem to take to rather readily. Near the Village Are a few farm houses. It is no uncommon thing to see the Farmer with his family inhabiting one end of the House and his cows and horses the other with a Stone Wall partition Between. Uncle Sam is doing a wonderful work for France. The French Are eagerly accepting the innovations. I wish i could Tell just what is being done but censorship forbids. General Pershing paid us a visit a few Days ago i saw and heard him speak. He had Many words of Praise for the work that had been done and gave us an inspiration to do our Best for the boys at the front. We Are doing that and will continue. A for our physical Comfort we Are Well cared for. We have Barracks to live in and a Large v. M. C. A. For entertainment and study. Courses Are being organized in the various academic branches for the boys who desire them. Army life would be Barren indeed were it not for this great organization. The secretaries exert every Effort to make our life Here enjoyable. All Praise to them and to those who contribute to make these things possible. 1 a end greetings and Best wishes to All my friends.
