a letter from not long ago. I am glad Rob is doing well on the road, knew he would if he could only stay at it. I am gettin on alright but as you know I wasnt cut out for a soldier but I am giving them the best I have and I have had some fun experiences too. Can tell you lots of things if ever I get back. Expect when you get this it will be Thanksgiving and I certainly would like to be there - Give my love to Mama and Fan and the rest.
your affectionate son Tom Nov 4th 1918
