"We spent a very pleasant Thanks
giving day. Tho (lay was rainy and
the evening more so. It was declared
an absolute holiday for the tnen and
only tho necessary military work Was
done. About the only thing I had to
do was to send the headquarter truck
to Huldecourt for rations. We do
this every day, rogardless of any
thing olse. Tho men must eat, you
know, and wo have to make this trip
every day as rations are drawn from
flay to day. In tho morning the chap
lain held church services in tho
theater and he preached a very fine
sermon. We had an ordinary lunch
at 1 o'clock and at i o'clock we had
our dinner. Wo had no extras is

Portland, M.
mediately etarted our journey acroaa
the ocean. We were convoyed by an
American oattleajilp and English
converted orueer all the way acyroaa.
We had an uneventful trip except on
the I Oth of May one of the ahlpa
sighted a submarine and they
dropped some depth charges. We
didn't see any more and X don't know
whether they got him or not. During
the last two days of the voyage we
were escorted In by airships, air
planes, torpedoboata and other small
armed boats. In all there were
about forty of these boats around us.
and they were especially watchful
when we were going down the Irish
coast. The ship docked at Liver
pool early on the morning of May
31 and we remained on ship all that
day. Our baggage was taken off
and I, was off the boat and went up
to the railroad yards to see that It
was loaded in the cars. It was my
first sight of English freight cars and
they certainly looked funny. They
I have only four wheels and are only
'about twelve feet long and hold about
ten or twelve tons of freight. We
left the ship on the Ist of June for
Rumsey, which is an English rest
camp. The baggage-loading detail
and" myself left from another station
than the rest of tho train and ar
rived at Rumsey about 2 o'clock
the next morning. >
"We stopped at Derby for coffee.
It was about a twelve-hour trip
through a very beautiful part of
England. A lieutenant and myself
had a compartment all to ourselves
and the men were about eight to the
compartment with their equipment
which made it a little crowded for
them but they got along all right.
You know all the passenger cars are
called carriages, freight cars, vans
or wagons. The carriages have three,
four or five compartments. In all
that distance I saw only one grade
crossing. The railroad goes either
overhead or underneath a road and
the entire railroad Is fenced In, all
of which Is a good Idea. ,
"We left Rumsey June 5 and
marched to Southampton, a distance
fo about eight miles. It was a very
easy march over fine roads and the
Colonel took It easy. Wo crossed the
English channel that same evening
on the channel boat. Prince George.
We were very crowded as the capac
ity of the boat was 700 and we had
1,295 men, so you see there was not
much Toom left. We received an is
sue of thirty-nine pounds of cheese
and several boxes of crackers for
1,295 men for breakfast tho next
morning. You can figure for your
self how much each man got. The
English ration Is not very liberal.
"We disembarked at LaHarve,
France, in the morning of June 6.
We marched through the city, up a
steep hill to another rest camp, up a
camp is near the edge of the city and
I was able to go In and see the city
for about two hours.
"We left I.a Ilarve at 2.30 a. m.,
June 8. for Camp de Meucon, Vannes,
Morbihan. This was an artillery
training canip. Here we underwent
extensive training, received our
horses and equipment and attended
schools. Vannes 1s a very old city
and this"part of France is inhabited
by the Britons. Their dress Is very
peculiar and very ancient. Wo had
an Interesting stay in this town and
while there I was at St. Nazal re to
get stores, also went with the colonel
and the chaplain to Nantes, also to
Port Navalo, which is a sort of sum
mer resort.
"We arrived at Mezy railhead at
12.80 a. m„ August 8, and the firut
thing we heard the railhead officer
say was " put out those lights." The
airplanes have been busy at this
point and only that evening they had
dropped a few bombs. You know a
railhead or ammunition dump is a
favorite place for the Jerrys to work
"We went into camp in the Eols
vent Jean Guilame or William woods
and Joined Companies A and B,
which had left us at Vannes the dav
after we arrived. They had been to
thf front since early in July. This
is the place where I received the
telegram from General Beary telling
me of the arrival of Jean, hence
the name Jean. We were here until
August 12 when we moved a little
nearer the front to the Bois Muniere,
where the ammunition train got*
down to real work in hauling the
ammunition up to the front. The
Jerrys dropped bombs all around
us while we were here, but we al
ways escaped. I guess because we
were In the woods and pretty well
camouflaged. You know camouflage
is a great thing over here. Always
keeps everything out of sight.
This camp was not a great ways
from the Vesle and I got up to the
front pretty often We left the Bol
Muniere on September 13 for the
rest period. We arrived at Epernay
on the evening of the 13th where we
camped for the night, left Kpornay
14 and cat hP e d for night
at Hellze, passing through Vitry-le-
Francois. arrived at Chaminob,
where we were to spend a thirty-day
rest period. The men were quartered
in the town and headquarters was at
the Chateau Troise Fountaine. We
did not stay here long for on the 18th
we were ordered to the Argonne sec
"We left Cheminon on the 18th
and camped at l'vorflmon where we
stayed the 19th. We left Yvonlmon
on the .9th and camped near Les
Islettes. We were here two days,
leaving on the nd and camped in
the Bois Chalade, Argonne, about Ave
kilos from the German lines. The
motor section was about a mile from
the horse section, and on the 24th
the horse section was shelled and we
lost eighteen men wounded, and 131
horses killed, wounded and evacu
ated. Some start for them. The mo
tor section also lost three men killed
while at this place and this Is the
place where some time later Vohn
Bausch had his leg broken. Cap-
Jni! n an d I were in a dugout
The men were in dugouts on the side
h i U ~ r in a "y "belter they
could And. On the morning of Sep
tember 25 the bombardment began
when hundreds of gujis began firing
and let was & terrible roar for a few
days. Something one will not forget.
It was at this place I had my twenty
three-hour trip in trying to go from
the woods to Varennes. The infantry
division was relieved on the 10th of
October, but the artillery brigade
and ammunition train was held in
reserve. 1 will not tell of all the
things that happened while I was In
the Argonne, only our movements
"The woods was very wet and
damp and a great many men were
getting pneumonia and on the 17th
of October ws were moved to Les
Islettes and went Into billets. The
chaplain. Captain Moyer and my
self were in a nice room with a ffre
placo and It certainly was an agree
able change. While we were at this
place a Jerry bombed the town but
did no ..damage. He missed calcu
lations and- dropped them on the
edge of town. While we were af
this place we were detached from the
Twenty-eighth Division and attach
ed to corps and hauled for the Sev
enty-eighth and Seventy-ninth Di
visions. Our artillery and our two
caisson companies were ordered to
Belgium and we have not seen our
two caisson Companies since, I un
derstand they were in another bomb
ing raid, having lost seventeen men
and forty horses. Major Rsnnlngsr
is also sick and has been evacuated
to the rear and In all probability will
go home.
"On October 23 we left Des Islettes
for Bute vine. In the St. Mlhlel sec
tor, but aa this plaoe was pretty near
the lines we were stopped at Beucom
villa, where we lived with the rats
for a few days. I had to even chase
the rats oft my bed at night.
"On October 29th wo moved to
S&vonleres, where we are now at.
The ammunition train did good work
here and since the ammunition haul
ing has stopped they" aro salvaging
i the divisional area."
Reception Tendered the
Returning Yanks Pleases
Uncle Sam's Doughboys
Arthur G. Black, a soldier from
this city, who Was among the re
cent to retuVn to this country from
the .European front, has written
his* father, George W. Black, 1940
North street, a letter In which he
describes his trip across and gives
a vivid description of the recep
tion tendered the returning soldiers
at New York City. The letter was
written on Christmas Day from
Camp Merritt, and follows:
"I thought X would write to you
and let you know that I am well,
and hope that you are all the same.
Trust that you got the telegram
which I sent yesterday. X left Brest,
FVance on the 17th day of December
to sail for the states. We got on the
boat on the 16th, and sailed the
next day at 7 p. m. Sailed on the
ship named "Prance," you may see
the picture of it in one of the papers
In the next few days, it was in the
New York Herald to-day.
"We had a nice trip- across, ex- !
cept the second and third days wet
were caught In a storm and It was
very rough. The waves were as high
as the B deck of the ship, and the
way it rocked was something awful.
There were about four thousand i
troops on board, and about three
thousand of them sick, and I was :
one of them. But In a few days I '
was all right again and did not care i
how much It rocked then. The last
two days of the trip the ocean was
very calm. It looked Just like a big
sheet of glass, and then wc made
good time. You could not tell wheth
er we were on water or on a train, .
it went so smoothly. I will send you 1
a card with the picture of the ship
on it. The ship was 667 feet long,
but sometimes It seemed as If it was
| only ten feet long tbe way it rocked.
"X will never forget the day we
pulled In the harbor. It was on the
24th of December, the day before
Christmas, at 12.30 p. m„ when the
noise started. There) were at least
five hundred ships In the harbor,
big and Bmall together, but they all
made noise and it was so loud that j
we could not hear each other talk ;
when we were right beside each |
other. All whistles of the boats, ships ,
and trains, factories and mills were
blowing, and It lasted from * 12.30 |
until 'way af\er 2 o'clock. i
"It took twg boats to tow
us into the dock. When we got there,
there were band concerts and every
thing else. There were bands on the
ships, and an army band op the
dock, and lots of people. They were
playing from the time they saw us 1
until we got off the boat. That was
not all, there were lots of people |
in the building cheering, and out of
the WoolwortU building and the Na
tional Biscuit Company windows
there yre re paper flying from all di
rections, till the streets below look
ed as though it had snowed.
"They also had a big Are boat in
the harbor and had half a dozen
lines of hose spraying water on It.
Believe me, It was the best day of
my life! But that was not.all. When
we got off the boat there were all j
kinds of things for us, and it did i
not cost us a cent for anything. Be- I
fore we could start to cat anything !
or get it into our pockets, there was
some ole coming with something
else. "The Salvation Army, Red

where we will bo for about three or
four daya. Then we will leave for a
camp cloaer home, so It will not be
worth while writing to me now until
I know where I will be. It may be
that I will be home in about two
weeks. I did not lose any weight In
the army. Weighed myself to-day
nnd tipped the scales at 16G 1-2
pounds without my overcoat.
"We had some dinner to-day, the
first good dinner we had since I
have been in the arpiy. 1 had all the
turkey I could eat, pie, cake, olives,
hot chocolate, asparagus, beans, or

kinds of nuts, celery, turkey filling,
grapes, bread, butter and jelly, and
when I got all this stuff put away

they came around and wanted to
know whether I wanted any more.
They told us they had plenty of It,
and they sure must h&Ve, the way
It was piled up In froht of Us.
"The best part of It was wo did
not have to go apd get our things
ths way wo have been doing for
about six months. They had men
there to put It right on our plates,
and all we had to do was to see
that It would get off. But they would
not let our plates get empty. They
also made UB fill our pockets with
candy, nuts and fruit, and we sure
had one big time. A Christmas that
X will never forget.
"Well, I guess I will coleo this
time. This Is abo.ut the flrst big let
ter that I wrote to you for a
time. J wish you all a Marry Chrtat
tnaa and a Happy Now Yaar. Ehpect
