**Journal** June 29, 1918 Very little action today. Boche didn’t come back last night. The British cut them up pretty badly night before last with bombs as a reprisal, so I guess they will keep away for a while. Cloudy today so there was very little flying. Went down to Colombey—les—Belle this afternoon. **Journal** June […]

Letter No. 4 June 29, 1918 Dear Folks, Haven’t had an opportunity to write lately, but my letters don’t all arrive in the order they are mailed, so I guess you haven’t missed them. I am up at the front now, and have been for quite a little while. My steel helmet is not as […]

**Journal** June 26, 1918 Saw Don Price here with the 1st. Vrooman is with the 88th and O’Connor with the 90th. Both are here. Was glad to see them. Busy yesterday getting machines off to the front with radios O.K. We heard about several shoots. The air is hazy and partially clouded now, so don’t […]

**Journal** June 22, 1918 Busy all day getting new radio sets out to the squadrons. Was notified this afternoon that my orders had been mailed to me and that I would get them in the morning. Hope it’s true. I’ll get on the way quick. Cleared up today. Feel “bully” but tired. No raids or […]

**Journal** June 20, 1918 No orders yet. Heard at the Paris office that they had been located and would soon be here today. I spent the day or rather the afternoon in Paris getting some things from the Q.M. Rode all under the city in their subways. Still cloudy and wet. **Journal** June 21, 1918 […]

Letter No. 2 France, June 19, 1918 Dear Folks, Just another line to say hello. No news, but no news is good news these days you know. I am getting along fine and will never be thru being thankful that I broke away from that instructing job back in the States. You know how I […]

**Journal** June 18, 1918 Nothing new in line of orders. A general “balling up” has occurred. Allison should have come out here from Orly instead of me. Tom’s and my orders taking us to the front should have come ten days ago. Our chief is mighty mad at the personnel department. **Journal** June 19, 1918 […]
