A letter has just been received
from "Buddy" Rasberry of this city.
Me has been m France for several
months and is apparently enji'yip'i
Hfo "over there." The letter follows:.

"Dear folks rtt home:
"This is a rainy Saturday night so
I thought it would be a good time
for me to write you a long letter
that is I am starting with that in-
tention but I am liable to run short
of news and have to cut it short.
This leaves John and myself exceed-
ingly well and feeling fine in fact I
don't know that either of us have
felt differently since we have been
over here with the exception of a
e sh or two of grip.
"it is lonesome around here to-
night usually wo have a ball game
or something after supper but it is
too rainy tonight for anyone to bo
"A sad thing happened in our
squadron a few days ago. You see
or original squadron was divided up
some time ago and our moss sergeant
was sent with the third flight. They
.ire located a long ways from us but
ciiieoi.G had a letter from them a
few days ago tolling us that he ha I
b";n murdered. lie was a good fol-
low a ul Iho news of the tragedy was
a shock to all of us.
"Wol' fcno year ago today Wood-
row Wison saw fit to enter this war.
Things surroundings and oircum-
stniloes will surely change in a year
and I hope by tho timo another year
has passed we will all bo back in
the good old IT. S. A.
"France Is a great place the peo-
ple are quite polite and nice to us.
in fact they would go out of their
way to accommodate an American.
You never see any fences or houses
except stone ones. I have seen just
lots of old cathedrals and churches
that are three or four hundred years
old. and old chateaus or palaces that
date back as far as Louis XIV. The
architecture of .those buildings is
something wonderful. The majority
of them are just as pretty on the in-
side as they were the day they were
"Do you remember the Carrs that
sister used to speak of that lived at
Tipton? Well Mrs. Carr's nephew
is a sergeant here at this camp. He
received a box today that was sent
1 la-'l November so Join) and 1 may
j Ret the Christmas box Vet. We re-
ceived the one a few days ago with
! the toilet articles in and we surely
I did appreciate it. Soap is considered
j uitc a blessing over here in fact
j all the things you sent were just
what wo were greatly in need of.
"When I returned to camp Thurs-
day after a two weeks stay away I
was very gladly surprised to hear
that John had been made a sergeant.
He informed mo that I wasn't his
euperior any more and he didn't pro-
pose to fake any more orders from
me just because I wore throe stripes.
I use to tell the men that John was
big enough to lake care of himself
and that my stripes would take rre

you always were but try to write
oftenor as wo look forward to your i
