I will leave my letter the same, but we did not leave last night. We got everything ready and expected to go and did leave the trenches we were in but stopped in others more in the rear. They say this stop is only temporary and that we will leave any time now within the next two or three days. Of course something may happen to prevent, but I really think we are going this time.
The captain had a telephone message last night, saying Italy had declared war on Austria. Most of our Company are Italians so it created great excitement. Haven’t heard the message confirmed, but hope it is true.
