Overhere, Sept. 27, 1918

Friend Mr. Frantz,

I thought I would write you a few lines. I am O.K. and enjoying life over here. How is everything back home? Everything is fine and dandy. Suppose you wonder why I didn’t write before. Honest, I don’t get much time between work and other thing, like washing clothes and mending. We have some pretty good shows here at our open air theatre. A bunch of sailors give us some real stuff every once in a while and different companies also give entertainments, also have movies about three times a week and boxing is a big feature here.

This sure is a great country for wine. That’s all the civilians drink, both for meals and pleasure. It rains here nearly every day now, but it doesn’t get very muddy as the ground is very sandy. I buy the New York Herald every day. The French sell them in the camp. Well, I haven’t much to say this time so will close. Hoping this letter reaches you O.K., I remain.

Your friend, Pvt. Fred A. Haas, Co. A, 32nd Engs., Amer. Exp. Forces, Indt. 2151337
