[July 19, 1918]

Dear folks:

Everything fine here. We are being treated wonderfully well. A piano has been procured for our entertainment. We take our usual walks and have all the privileges we had at Upton. There is a fairly large town, right near the camps, wherein one can procure anything he desires, such as toilet articles, fruits etc. So you see I am not at all isolated.

The Board of Inquiry interviewed us again today. I was among those declared sincere and hence the board is willing to recommend me for farm-work. Of course, I refused, as did all but one of the others. I can accept nothing under dictation. All the men who refused did so because they objected to being conscripted to any kind of work.
