Aboard the Adriatic

April 24, 1918 – Letter from Robert to his mother:

Co. B 140th Infantry

Amer. Expeditionary Forces

Dear Mother

You will notice I have a new address Amer. Exped. Forces. We left Camp Mills early this morning. I am writing this aboard ship but do not know when we will leave.

I am not allowed to put the date, name of ship or port in this letter. The ship is a fairly good looking one. She flies a British flag.

I would have liked to heard from you before I left to know how everyone is. Elinore wrote + I got it last night. She says everyone is alright.

Be sure and give her that money, she will need it this summer and will need it bad too.

I hope you + Ruth + Bess are better now.

Give my love to all and write soon.

Your loving son
