August 30/1917- Mother dear- I have just a few minutes before they call lights out in which to say "goodnight". The long-lost trip arrived at last and it was a real one. We left at some early hour (long before dawn) carried seventy-fives and returned at about nine tonight. A pretty long drive. I have just finished carrying
gasoline and brushing off the mud and dust - so that old twenty-two is already for the inspector again - and I am all ready for bed. I hope that they keep us busy from now on and that the repos is not only broken but ended. Although tired - I think the fellows are more contented than they have been for a week. Rest
is all right - but when given in large doses - much worse than a little too much work. Lots of love. Will try to write a regular letter tomorrow. 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.
