[?] Coy 85th Batt.
July 4th 1917
Just a few lines to let you know I am still Jake and everything in the garden is lovely except the Radishes and they are not so bad. Ha, Ha,
Well I have not had a letter from you for the last couple of weeks but I guess I get one in a day or two now at least I hope so.
Well have they captured Billie yet but I guess not as he is a R.W. Krau is he not and I am led to understand that they are to be left alone and believe me they will be lucky if they are and thats no dream.
Well kid how is the new hobby coming along these days I guess you have it down to a fine art by this time Eh if not it is not like you at all.
Well I must sing off for this time but will write again in a couple of days.
Love to all
