Letter to Paul B, June 3, 1919
[Received June 3, 1919]
[addressed to Camp Grant, Ills.]
My Dear Paul-
By the time I mail this tomorrow morning you will be landing
in Chicago. I was realy surprised that you left N.Y. so soon. But
it was a glad surprise. I wrote you a post card yesterday which I
also sent to Chicago.
Before this time next week I expect to see you.
This has been a beautiful day. Warm and sunny. But I have
worked hard and sure am all in. Am going to bed about eight-thirty.
Some people are expecting Co. D. home tomorrow. If they come
we will get off part of the day, and of course we will be off all
day Friday. I suppose you will be parading Chicago then.
We girls took some good pictures Sunday. Your kodak takes
dandy pictures now. I guess I didn't know how to use it at first.
Well ours is a quiet neighborhood these days. No young
people around at all it seems. If you find any excitement you
will have to make it yourself or else go some where else.
Pearl said she was coming to meet you when she saw you
coming home. We told her you wouldn't know her and she said she
would tell you her name.
Well I'll tell you everything when you come home which is a
matter of only a few days now.
With Love as ever Cecil.
excuse a pencil please.
