Tessie I am sorry that some one wont be with you all and in case the war is over I do hope that I can get discharge right away. I am feeling lots better now and hope that I will continue to because although I would like to see you I would not like for you to have to come down here to see a sick man. Tessie it is to bad that there are so many deaths in the burg and it seems to be all over the country I do hope that it will improve and as there are so many deaths it must be just awfull but that is a thing that we can never tell about. Tesse tell papa I would like to be there to start the first fires for him and clean out the boilers just anything very probaly you have a few dishes to wash or some thing may be by now I could do the washing. Tessie tell the others that I would like to write to all but when I write to you I know that it does for all and as I aint much at writing you all will have make out with a letter to one for all Tessie there started out this morning a regiment of men for Over Seas and they started at a bout 2 two oclock in the morning and it is said that they are still out here in the cars.
