Dear Mother

we have finally got to a place where we have plenty to do we drilled from to in the morning in the afternoon we graded roads from to

About twenty of us got our second inoculation This morning when I got up I felt pretty rotten I was sore all over I couldnt lift my right arm above my waist and I havent got rid of my cold yet I reported on the sick list with about others and got some pills which will probably fix me up

We had to clear up for inspection this morning They inspected everything here this Saturday morning My arm bothers me a little to write but I dont have anything to do but lie around I expect some forwarded mail from Fort Slocum today I hope noone sent anything of importance because it might get lost If they did do not worry they are good about such things I just went out to have a drink and saw the whole camp on parade drill It was a great night every man in step and band playing and officers

Take a short break with our 1 minute survey, simple questions that are an enjoyable distraction.

on their horses directing their prospective companies I have not been assigned to this company yet I am only attached to it as soon as I am assigned to a Company I will get a chance to study to be a non commissioned officer We had cornbeef hash oatmeal jelly bread and cocoa

We get milk and sugar but no butter We dont mind that because after we have been drilling for hours steady we are ready to eat almost anything Believe me the drilling I got at the boys club helps a whole lot

I suppose there are letters that you have written a while ago that I haven got yet I don know how long it takes for a letter to get here because it is an out of the way place Will be glad to get any news from home

Are any of the young folks home yet Tell Rolfe to drop a line I am glad he got rid of his Maxwell You asked me a while ago where I left my keys Have forgotten whether I answered or not but they are somewhere home in my pants

Hoping that you are all well With love to all
I remain your affectionate son
