Dear Mother, Dad, and Brothers,


Well, how are you getting along? Just fine and dandy I hope. Thanks, for your letter Mother and Ray. Also for them pictures (sic) of you playing football. Just got a letter from Chris. The first one for quite sometime, but that is the way this army is sometimes it will be a long time you can’t write. I’ve been pretty lucky in being able to write except the very first when we came overseas. You know how it is so there is no use worrying if you don’t hear for a while. Of course it is pretty hard to keep from it too, but just have to leave everything in God’s hands, because you soon see how helpless you are in yourself. How is the stock wintering? How early did you have to start feeding all the cattle? Has thawed nearly all the snow here, but has froze again now. Just sent home another twenty dollars, which you should be getting soon. Good-bye for this time.


Your son & brother,
