Writing to hlH parents, Dr. and Mrs.
McCabo from Obermendid, Germany,
Clarence McCabo undor date of. Do
combor 25th. in scrvico overseas, says:
"Cliristmas Lay in' Obormendlg,
Germany. This day will long bo re
momborod, and I shall think of it
at each Christmas time as the years
pass, not because I am specially happy
at this time, but bocauso of tho stran
geness of my surroundings and be
cause it is tho first peaco Christmas
nftor tho war. In fact I may doscribo
my feelings and emotions as thoso of
sadness, as I passed the snow covered
streets tonight. Glancing in at tho win
dows, hero and there, I could see the
Christmas trees with their dazzling
lights, sparkling warmly for tho happy
children within. They are happy, in
deed, their Christmas has not been
embittered by tho war, for they are
not old enough to know.
Last ovoning tho snow began falling
and continued to fall until lato In the
night, covering everything with a
blanket of puro white. Whon it ceased
tho clouds began to break up and drift
away and when I woke early thla morn
ing tho moon had come up arid was
shining brilliantly on tho breast of the
now fallon snow. Tho frozen pond
down in tho field below resembled a
pool of quicksilver, so brilliant was its
surface. This morning dawned clear
and cold -and tho "people began to pasB
to and fro, going and coming from
All this time, all day, my thoughts
havo bjoon elsowhero and thinking
what an ideal Cliristmas this would
mako wore I at home, back among tho
friends I used to know and with my
father and mother who lovo mo and
whom I love. It will not bo long, I think
until I will really be at homo again.
Everything seems to bo running
smoothly in this part of Germany and
I cannot see any reason why wo should
bo required to occupy German terri
tory for any great length of time.
I received twelve letters last night.
They ctuuo just in timo for Christmas.
Sovoral of them wore from you. It
had beoon such a long time since I had
received any letters, and coming ai
this time, they holpetl to make things
seem a little moro like Christmas.
I know that you appreciate this
peaceful Christmas after tho war. The
war has been a tragedy to everyone,
but I think that no one can ap'preciato
peaco as much as a soldier who has
como face to face with war's conse-'-nuonoes.
What doea it mean to me?
What if I wore this very night crouch
ing in a shell-hole in no man's land
expecting every moment to be blown
'to atoms? Instead God has given us
peace, and I am able to sit here in tho
comfort of a warm room and write to
you. So you may know how I apprec-
iato for the first timo In my life the
following taken from tho Gospel of St.
