GUY MARSHALL letter during WWI


Source: Unknown but probably Waveland Independent newspaper

A cheerful Letter from Guy Marshall, April 26, 1918 A.E.F. Dear Mother: How are all at home? I am fine and dandy. I am in a fine country, plenty of mountain air and water. Spring has opened, and plenty of song birds, and everyone is busy getting the summer crops in. Don't get the idea that all is blood and bullets over here. The people have some money. I can't tell what I pay for anything. Everything is francs and centimes. Over in England it was shillings and six pence. I am going fishing some of these days; we have the mountain trout, a fine fish, too. The people work the horses in single file and have two-wheeled carts. Some have the cattle to work. The people wear wooden shoes and very cheap clothing. They are about 200 years behind USA. Well, tell Fritz and Bert to read this letter and write, for I can't write too much. You can tell Bert there were lots of high joints and low centers in the sea when I came across. I will close. From Guy to all. Co I 30th Inft. AEF.
