On the Front, Aug. 21. Dear Prof. Davidson: Your good letter came yesterday and it cheered me more than anything. I read it over two times last night by candle light in my dugout and each time I felt a hu|ndred per cent better.

Your French is real good and even though I was com- pelled to call upon my good friend and pal, Francheri, (a French lad of three years' war experience) to help me read the paragraph it worked out well and good.
