Dearest Mother & Family, Just a word informing you of my being still somewhere safe and sound Am very glad I have the opportunity of telling you this fact. I haven't heard from you since the 6th of Oct but hope to hear from you again soon. I haven't anything of interest to tell you, for it is practically the same thing happening each day. Well, I can tell you I have seen quite a bit of France. By the time I return, which don't think will be long, I will have been practically all over France.
