Dear Parents

This evening finds me in Camp and writing to you. I thought as I had leisure this evening I would write to you. I arrived in Harrisburg this morning just daylight. I found the boys all well and enjoying themselves well. It seems a little like old times to be in Camp with all the boys around again. Camp Curtin is as muddy as ever though the accommodations are better than when we were here before.

Saturday Dear Parents and I am trying to finish this letter. The boys made so much noise last night and had so many questions to ask I could think of nothing I wanted to.

We had a very pleasant trip through. We had to lay over two days for transportation. I think the night I stayed in Corning was the lonsomest night I ever spent.
