Certainly hope Father, John & Geo. enjoyed their trip in the car only wish I could have been with them. Well today is Sunday and I an in the Y.M.C.A. Note This is a right nice little town about ten thousand population but I don't believe we will be here so very long although I can tell anything about it. Sure will be glad when this thing is over I can get back home again. They gave us all a gas mask yesterday and I am sure I will always keep where I an get to it. There is a lots I would love to write but you have no idea how hard it is for me to write, for you have to be so
