Letter July 18, 1918 from David Eichel to ___ Langman
My brother and 3 others were held over at Camp Upton. I suppose he is to be court- martialed for having refused to submit to vaccination and inocculation, after having been ordered to do so by Maj. Gen. Bell. The parting with him was the most distressing feature of our transfer here, for besides being brothers, we had been/were inseperable companions. But of course this seperation was to be expected sooner or later…hence I am perfectly reconciled to it.
