Letter Mrs. Frank Showman 611 Bridge St (wife) Morgantown, W. Va. My own dearest wife:-This is my scc let I have written you and Fred Jr first one on acct of having recd 3 shrapnel wounds 2 on right leg and on arm. As I said before, none are of any such nature as to cause loss of limb or anything otherwise serious; except that it will be painful for sometime and keep me in bed a while I am taking it as a good rite as we all look at things over here. I think the hospital [?] and doctors here are simply splendid and if can be sure they will do all that is poss also one comfortable and contented. I do not know after we leave here and way yet since lighter branch of service with less danger in it. You must not let this matter bother you in the least for we must take it as His plan of working out what is best for us all for my part I can consider it a most lucky turn of affairs for me both wh will mean a good restful time for me. It seems I could have gotten it no other way. You can be assured th my
[?] will be found wh I come back. You can be assured also I am as determined as ever to come back to you soon and in good health we all hope- there is great consolation in the belief the war may end soon and I will have no ch of seeing service again. Tell mother Conway I am coming back to work her coal mine fr her and girls. I will close here and will try to write often as often as the RC worker who is writing this for me can find time to stop by my bed. Your devoted husband Frank-
