Dear Mother,

I am still in the hospital but I have a feeling it won't be for very long now. One thing I miss is mail. There have been no letters since I came down here. It makes things lonesome when there are no letters for me. Perhaps my luck will change to-night when the mail is distributed....There are plenty of concerts and entertainment for those who are able to be up and around. The patients who are confined to bed are kept cheery with gramophones, etc. This place is certainly a big change after being in the trenches for nine months. Things are going pretty smoothly up the line, but I don't think there will be much more fighting on this front. Winter weather will prevent any big moves. There may be something doing in the Balkans I hear.
