Full Text: Dear Hun,

We arrived here last night and had a nice trip down. I hope you take good care of your self [sic] and don't forget the things I told you.

This is a very nice camp and everyone is so friendly. I am hoping to like it better as the days go by.

All your mail was here-- several letters from Briscoe-- others from Mrs. Hill Geo. Woods and some more.

I will write you again soon-- Hope mother is much better.

Don't forget the 11th of Jan. Remember me to all. Write soon.

Love, Hun
