Lancaster R#1. Pa July 28-1918. Bro IB. Good; Greetings. I saw Farm Agent F._. Bercher, and he said he would be glad to give all the service he could. But he said he believes the Secretary of Agriculture has, and would work thru the committee of public safety, or food administration. It seemed to me he felt that he was being sidetracked, and made it back member. I told him probably Peter R. Nissley would call on him and present some names. (I expect to see Peter tomorrow AM at his home, when I go to B____ Church for Harvest service.) I will be at Simon E. Garber’s at Noon. How about visiting around in Maryland on Sat and Sunday next. Probably the Barrack 39 may be cleared. F.C. Newcomer has sent me a list of the CO’s as furloughed to countees; but have not heard any definite addresses. I had said list of names printed in the news journal for parents’ information. We might visit a few scattering, and get to Rifes and Morgansville etc on Sunday, if you see fit to do that. I may get some letter this week yet from F.C.Newcomer. We might meet at New D___ or New Providence.

meeting, and decide for further action in visits etc, if you so state; you may phone to Bish Herr. I may attend some of those meetings. The heat, I think, affects my father-in-law’s son; I have an appointment for Monday PM. I had read that the C____ Bridge was out-but is not in, repairs again, -could you cross well? On Tuesday a.m. I bought Daniel Westenbergers horse; and he brought him to Pre Wenger in Manheim on Wed. (there was a large fire there Tues. eve) I fetched the horse from there thurs a.m. We are well as usual, hope you are the same- Respect yours, JC Habecker.
