Hello Everybody,

 

Thanks, for your letter again this week Mother. Glad to hear that all of you are getting along alright. Thankful I can still say the same for myself. Yes, it is four years ago today since I left for this army. Who’d ever thought it would be that long? Hope and pray that this war may end soon, so we can get out of this army and back to old N.D. again. Just had a letter from Chris. Guess he is having it a little better again. Yes, in one way it seems like a long time ago and at the same time it has gone fast too. Is hard to think of little Selmer being gone, but he is a way from all this earthly strife and sorrow. May we live our lives, so that some day we may get to see  him again. I have had good health all the time. Never have been sick enough so I’ve had to go to a doctor yet in this army and I pray that it will continue that way. Have had a little rain, but is getting spring like so is quite a bit warmer. Good-bye for now.

 

Love,

Your son & brother,

Hank
