  Felton, M.M.   Camp Grant, Ill.   Sept 7 1918

Dear folks and friends at home,

We arrived O.K. in spite of bad luck. We fought our connections on the train and made good all the way.

We are feeling fine and having a good time. Just got in camp at 7:30 and assigned our bunks. Haven't had any drill yet. We have a fine camp and all the boys say we will like it.

We wouldn't miss this great opportunity for anything and we believe if the U.S. sends a few more men like us, we are sure to take Berlin.

Don't write until you find out where we will be located, then we will let you know our address.

Your truly,
M.M. Felton and Loyal E. Nelson
