This letter was written to Fern from her cousin, William Allison Cooley. Contributed by J. G. Italiano

Some where in France
August 21-18
Dear Coz. Fern. I recd. a letter from you sometime ago. I am really ashamed that I have not answered sooner but if you will excuse me this time I will try to be more prompt next time. How are all of you. Cabe & I are just fine & haveing [sic] a good time. We are in the trenches now. oh, oh, (wait a minute) a big shell just burst above our dugout & the scharpnel falling on the tin roof sure is making some noise. This is our third time in the trenches. Like it fine up here. In fact we have a lovely summer home up here & if we could only convince Jerry that his shells are very annoying at times perhaps he would ease up once in a while, but at that I am sure that they are just as busy dodging our shells as we are theirs. I saw Lee J. about three weeks ago They were stationed at the same town as we were. I have seen all the boys that were at Doniphan with us, since we have been over here. I got a letter from Vernal today she said there was going to be a Chautauqua at Lucerne [in] a week & the proceeds go to the red cross. Well we sure have got to give it to the red cross & ymca workers because they are sure doing their bit over here as well as the rest of us. Well there is not much more to tell you this time so I will close. Hope to hear from you soon. as ever Allison C.
