Feature Letter of October 17th, 2018
Gilroy, Wilbert H.
Well Mother, it is just one month to-day since we left Folkestone. I am glad you received cable O.K. and did not have to worry. I had quite a time to get it off. Had to use bribery and corruption. It seems much more than a month since we landed. We have been busy though, and it is just when I look over the last month, and recall some of my experiences, that the time seems long. Really I am quite happy, and have everything I could wish for, almost. I would like a drink of Mt. Forest water, but I will get that when I get home. And I am feeling so well, never felt better in my life. I sleep well, eat well, and I believe look well. I am sorry those photos were such a failure. The fool should have told me to take my cap off my eyes. I didn't know how I looked. However I had on my new suit. How do you like it? That is the most important thing as you had one of me before I left.
