affair without hospital treatment. On the 13 th day other Cos stepped in and assumed the Gov’t’s responsibility to feed us. It may be that this starvation was directly responsible for our arrest and confinement. All the men have fully recovered from this prolonged fast.

Julius is now at the Disciplinary Barracks at Fort Leavenworth. I suppose you know he received most inhuman treatment at Fort Jay. Hon. F.P. Keppel has assured my folks that his treatment at Leavenworth will be far better. You might write him % of D.B’s Ft. Leavenworth. I doubt if he is permitted to write but I know he is able to receive letters, and I am sure it would please him intensely to hear a word of good cheer from you.

Thank you heartily for your kindness in wishing to aid me financially. I have absolutely no use for money since I can buy nothing. But apparently I am permitted to receive things from the outside. Anything you send will be appreciated. I might ask you to send me some stamps, since I may have some difficulty in getting them from here. I have already asked someone to call upon Sam Y. for an additional supply of paper and envelopes. My old stock is almost exhausted.

I am still in excellent spirits and fine physical condition. I am not a bit dismayed at my incarceration and I hope none of my friends will be. My kindest regards to all my friends and comrades.

As ever



Camp Funston, Kans.
