June 5th

 Mrs. B. Shook,

 Dear Sister,

 Just a line to let you know that we are away for France.  Our commander got orders to send 400 men in a hurry.  Got word about 2 P.M. and we got away bout 6 and a nasty rain storm.  Walked till about 1 A.M. the next morning.  Make about 18 miles.  We are having inspection today and I think we go over in a day or two.  We are both well as can be expected only a little foot sore but very light harted.  Wish we could hear from before we leave.

 With love to all.  In a hurry.  Will.  Address the same till you hear again
