WRITES TO SISTER
lira. Frank Streets Receives Letter
from Her Brother in the
Army of Occupation
From Tuesday's Dally.
Mrs. Frank Streets is in receipt of
a letter from her brother. John P.
Miller, in which he tells of his ex
perience in the army of occupation,
and of his impressions of army lif-
over there, as seen first hand. 1 f is
Bleiolf. Germany, Feb. IT.
I will drop you a few lines, telling
you I am still in the land of the liv
ing and that I am feeling fine, hop
ing that you are enjoying life and
are well and happy. How is little
Emma? Does she have much to say
about me? I sure miss her. but then
I think I will be home again in a few
months. We have been having some
pretty cold weather for this country
lately. In fact, for tlte past three
weeks it has been unusually cold. It
has begun to rain now and believe
me, I have seen more rain since I
came to France than I ever saw in
'all the remainder of my life. When
we were at the front it was rain and
mud all the time. It was a fright,
but now we do not have to get out
into the mud as we did then.
I am going to leave here for a
few days and get away from the
company for a short time. I have
not had a pass since I was in the
army. We are going to a big town
which is about sixty miles from here
and will try and enjoy the trip. Tell
Frank we bought some souvenirs.
The Yanks bought -all the booches
had to sell. What we do not get on
the field we purchase when we march
through. We sure had a great time
when we hiked through Germany.
It is a distance of one hundred, and
fifty miles from where we were when
the armistice was signed to wehre
we are now. For history the boys
made up a good song. The name of
it is. "Don't see how the Hell They
Made a Soldier of Me." I will close
for this time. From your brother.
