Jackson, Charles E.
Sad news about who has died of the flu in Hamp. Irritation at who gets sent home and those who get preference. Assures her that the stories circulated in the states about the camp are false, made up by men of the 41st Division who went home in February. There is a venereal camp nearby, but an entirely separate organization from the classification camp. Has seen many letters from mothers and sweethearts to men asking why they are in the camp, but it's not true. Glad to know he has a position when he returns home; Mr. Sullivan treated him fine, but he cannot work for so little pay. Despite the pay, he is done with the army: "The army itself is great, sure is a good clen life, but other things attached to it are terrible." Margaret Wilson dedicated a hut in camp: she looks much like her father and is a big hit with the boys. Page 1-4 may be from a different letter from 5-9 given the discontinuity in writing.
