Dear Helen & Papa. I will drop you a few lines to let you know I'm fine and hope you are the same. The weather over here is cold and rainey, and the mud is pretty bad. We have been in under fire a few times but as yet it hasnt been too close so don't worry about me. If you follow the war news close you can tell about where I'm at. I am in the major battlefront of Europe. How is every thing back home? fine I hope? I bet the fruit and everything is getting ripe and good. Boy how I miss it. I will close now until I get time to write again.Goodnight. Tell all I said hello. Your Loving Son Lawrence. V ···- MAIL
