A P. Sell Wounded Writes Cheerful Letter Home

The following is a letter received by R. E. Sell last Saturday from his son, Alfred, written August 16th, bringing them the news that he had been wounded and was then on his way from France to England.

Dear folks and all;

As I will be able to sit up today will try and write a few lines. I am in the hospital at present but am getting better, so don’t get excited when you read this. It is nothing serious at all, had one knee and hip dislocated and a shrapnel wound in the other knee, but I am getting along fine. Wanted to write sooner but could not move in bed so simply had to wait until I could sit up. I will be sent to England tomorrow. Use my same address when you write until you hear from me again.

Your loving son and Brother, Al.
