McKinley, France, to Jennie Austin, Eldred
August 9, 1918
I hope you will pardon me for not writing sooner. But when I had paper, I did not have time and when I had time, I could not get paper. Have you heard from Raymond lately? I have had one letter from him.
I don’t suppose there are so many city boarders up this year.
Aunt Aida sent me a couple of pictures of the children saluting. They certainly looked comical, especially Robbie. Is Willie still working at Proctor’s?
Tell Grandfather that I will write him sometime. When I get back home, we will have some time swapping war stories. Raymond will talk for a week steady when he gets back.
I am getting along well. Except in a big drive there is not much danger, so you need not worry about me. Give my love to all.
Your loving son, Mac
