night and all costumes had to be
hand made. Some of them were
certainly wonderful. I didn't attend
but the whole bunch paraded
throug the Wards to let the Bed
Patients see what they were like. It
was the funniest procession I ever
saw as the majority of them were
on crutches or in wheeled chairs. They
go to an awful lot of trouble here
to give the patients a good time.
The old Dr. is a kindly old fellow
and has a head full of schemes
to help the troops pass the time, and
he also has money enough so that
he doesn't worry about expense.
I got 6 home letters that got for-
warded on to me on Sunday. I was
tickled to death to get them. Alice
has kept up a very faithful correspond-
ence. Will say good bye for just
now but will write you soon
again.
Your very loving Son.
Herbert.
