[August 15, 1918[?]]
My dear Langman
I received your letter and it was indeed a pleasure to hear from you. Allow me to assure you that my failure to write more often is in no way due to my waiting to hear from you. We have been harassed continually with so many petty nuisances that I could hardly muster enough patience for a letter.
We stayed at Leavenworth long enough to be interviewing a second time by the commission. Again I was constrained to reject their furlough offer for farm work. We were then told that we would be recommended for furlough, and if we refused we would be assigned to some non Combative branch of the service & failure to perform our duties there would be followed by courtmartial for disobedience of orders, etc. or some such charge.
