New York, January 5, 1918

My Dearest Maudy,

Well dear just a line to let you know that I am leaving for China. I am going on the Prairie and my address will be USS Prairie in care of Postmaster, N.Y.

Say, did you get that package if not let me know. Say, Maude, I will come home on a furlough when I get back. And then, dear, it will be home sweet home for me.

How would you like to go along with me? We would have some time you and I all alone.

I can’t think of any news so I will close hoping to hear from you soon.

I am your loving friend,


Write soon.
