To the Vicomte du Peloux
April 28, 1915.
We started to Lyon for repose, at least all the officers and everyone thought so. But orders were evidently changed while we were en route, for we are now in the rear of the lines getting a little rest after a very strenuous trip—very heavy firing in front of us. We went through Paris about midnight of the a6th but the train did not stop ten minutes, as we were then making fast time and turned north from there. I was disappointed but after eight months one gets indifferent.
