nnd duriug that time we got no news
of tho outsido world and only two
days before coming homo wo learned
of the bond drive by the bond sales
man coming thru tho valley. I came
to town without delay but got in too
Into to get my bonds at tho bank, the
only placo I knew of to buy them, and
then immediately commenced to get
information as to when my beys would
bo cnllod to tho army.
