August 28/1917- Dearest Home-Folks- We are at last in our new home - although by no means comfortable - in spite of the rain, which seems never to stop completely. The poor lads (from 18-80) "over the hill" must be having a nice time of it. Don't think that I would enjoy living in a trench this kind of weather.
We are still on repos - and it is beginning to show on the rest of the boys as well as on myself. We are about as sociable I believe as a bunch of starved bears. I have had a "grouch" for the past few days. Hope that we get a call soon - or we will not be fit for one. My love - as always goes with this. Ned.
From the service of James E. (Ned) Henschel, Co. B Reserve Mallet--French Army, American Field Service, Quartermaster Corps, General Hdgts., and Motor Transport Co. 831.
