April 1st, 1915.
Received your letter a couple of days ago, glad to hear from you and that you were in Paris. I have been in the trenches for sixteen days now and will probably stay a week longer, then go back for a week’s repose. This is a better regiment than the Second was. More discipline, etc., but better soldiers and men you would have confidence in in case of action. There are five other Americans and not a bad bunch.
