A Short Letter to Dad

January 20, 1919 – Letter to Robert’s father:

Dear Dad,

I ditched drill today and am writing a few letters. I wrote to cousin Agnes and told her that I would be to see them in a few weeks if nothing happened.

They have started drilling at nights now. I guess they are going to send us down to Mexico when we get back.

I wrote Mr. Miller a short note tonight, but I fear he will have left before my letter reaches him.

There is no news at present. We drill as usual only more of it. Everyone wants to get home pretty bad but I guess there is not much chance for some time yet.

Jan. 26

I started this letter a week ago but since there was no news I quit and there is no more now.

I got two letters from you this week.

There are to be some night drills of some sort this week and we expect to have rifle practices in the day time.

Love to all, Rob
