August 11, 1918.
As I promised to write to you and
my neighbors through your paper, I
now take the greatest pleasure in
Mr. Parks, of Choteau, and my-
self are the only boys from Mayes
county here, or the only ones I have
found yet. I will not have much to
tell you. We arrived here about 9
o'clock the morning of the eighth.
So the first place we went to was
our bunk which consisted of a cot
out in the hot sun without any shade.
There were two hundred and nine-
ty nine of us from Oklahoma, so we
were not lonesome for company. We
stayed there until 12 o’clock then
marched to the mess hall and hsd a
fine dinner; went back to our bunks
and got a few instructions, were
marched down to the company de-
pot, got our blankets and were turn-
ed loose until six, went back to sup-
per then back to our bunks. Sure
Next day didn’t do much. Sat-
urday we moved into our barracks
and were sure glad to get inside,
as this Texas sun shines hot at noon
and the sand comes in clouds. Some
of the boys are a little homesick.
There are now in this camp about
3800 boys. The camp was estab-
lished about two months ago. Just
sent out one bunch of boys. Will
probably send another bunch next
We sure have fine eating here and
plenty of it. Some of the boys are
sure working hard.
I went to the Y. M. C. A. today
to church; sure heard a good sermon
and almost the best singing I ever
heard. There are eighteen men
here with us from Oklahoma City.
Sixteen are married, some own oil
wells and some are very poor, so
you see we are put on an equality
when it comes to fighting for liber-
ty. Everyone has the same chance.
Will have to close, as it is getting
near mess time and I sure don’t
want to miss that. Will write again
soon. Maybe I can tell you more
next lime. I will probably go to
school next week.
Your friend and neighbor,
T. J. Kinion.
