Today I received your most welcomed letter that you wrote on the 8th of March. I'm glad to hear
all at home are in good health.
As for me mother, I'm O.K. and feeling fine. We're still having it pretty nice here mother.
We get cake or pie in our rations once in a while and the other day we even got a bottle of cold
cola and boy! we really enjoyed drinking it. That's the first soda I had since we left the states.
Mother, today I received a letter from Rose, and she told me that Alfred got engaged. When I read
it, I could hardly believe it, but Al always was ladies man, so I guess it's true.
Mother, you said that the last letter you received from me didn't have where I was at. Well when
I wrote that letter mother, I wasn't allowed to say where I was. Mother did you ever receive a
letter that a censor had cut? I often wondered if anything was ever cut out of my letters.
Mother, just because I'm at the front, please don't you and daddy worry about me, because it's not
really bad here. We do get a little shaky once in a while but after the excitement, we joke and
laugh about it.
I'll close now mother, with lots of love to you mother dear -- daddy and the kids.
Your loving Son,
