July 11th, 1917
I got the box with my birthday cake in it on Monday night, and it sure was good. I'm going to keep the five cents as a souvenir.
Nothing to tell about is happening over here just now. Yesterday we could hear the guns in France quite plainly. They were going all day and through the night. It was just like one continuous boom. We're about 20 miles north of Brighton, as you will be able to find out how far we
are, from the guns. Last night I got a box from all the girls, so I'm not doing so worse.
I'm on a bombing course now, for this week and next. We are almost sure of going on pass a week from Monday. That will be the 23rd of July. When we come back off pass they may put us on draft anytime or they may even send us without a pass. It all depends on the demand for men.
I'm sending some snaps and a negative.
That's all the news for this time.
Love to all.
World War I
