Glenn BARKER

Letter from Glen to his cousin Hazel, my (Karen Bazzani Zach) grandmother Hazel Morgan Smith

dated Jan 7, 1918

Camp Taylor, Ky - I will try and answer your letter as I am not doing anything. I just came from the Hospital Sunday and was marked quarters for 13 days. I am feeling good and hope that you folks are all well at this writing. The measles did not hurt me much only made me sick for about one day. Well, Hazel, when i got back from the hospital, my company shifted to New York and to George there was thirty one of the boys that I came with from my county and I am the only one that is left here in this camp. Well, there is not much news to write at this time. Well, suppose that Carl is having a good time in France. For this time well Hazel I hope him all the good luck that is going and that he will return soon with the medals of bravery and that this war will close soon with our victory - that is what we are out for and we are going to have it or there wont be a Dutchman left in the east. Well have you talked over home lately to the folks. I am going to try and get a pass home if I can in the neare future think that I can sense them boys are settling planes (?). Well it come a nice rain here last night and looks awful rainy yet think that it will rain tonight. Suppose that you folks are planning big for farming and that you are planting corn. Say I sure would like to see you pitch hay when it is 104 in the shade. Well Hazel I will close for this time hoping to hear form you soon. Tell me all the news from Glen B. P.S. I will have my picture taken and send you one of them to go with the three soldier boys. My address: 1 Bo 1 Battalion 159 Depot Brigade Camp Taylor Ky - write address plainly.
