Gunner Mitton Says French Tobacco Was Not Made to be Smoked.

G.N. Giddy, who sent a package of tobacco to W.R. Mitton at the front has received acknowledgment of the same. The letter is dated April 11th "Somewhere is France" and says:

DEAR SIR: - Just a few lines to thank you very much for your kindness in sending the tobacco. It arrived O.K. to-night and you may take my word that it was simply a godsend. We are well fed and clothed and in fact in need for nothing but tobacco, as our allowance is very small and French tobacco was never made to be smoked.

We all hope the war will soon be over, but guess we will have to go through some warm places before we come back.

Everybody in this battery is feeling fine and so far have had no casualties and hope our luck continues.

Well, thanking you again and hoping to be back and having the pleasure of thanking you personally, I remain

Yours sincerely

W.R. Mitton
