I thought to have written you before this but I haven't had much time and the fact is I have been sick caused by a vaccination. I am feeling very well this morning and I like this place all right. The people are very nice to us here they bring us ice-water when we are drilling. Avery is in this company and he says his mother didn't know it. He says he likes it all right so I guess he will stay here anyway whether he likes or not. We are now in camp with eight men in a tent. I have a fine place to sleep two blankets and a net to keep off the mosquitoes. This is all I know at present. Good bye, Fred.
