do when we get back - to the states.. My pen went dry. When one's pen goes dry in the front line he has to write with a pencil. I wish I could tell you all about life in the trenches - it's great. Do not be uneasy about me? Am alright wish I could write oftener. Best love to everybody.

[Devotedly?] , Hope.

Company L (not I) - I have been getting your letters and I will tell you how much I enjoy them the first time the first time I get a chance to write when I won't be bothered by the shell bursts etc. Best love.
