Interesting Letter From Jay
letter from Walter Loy, with the American Expeditionary forces now in
you? I am feeling fine. I arrived all O.K. Certainly had some boat
ride. We were on the water many days
and I didn't get a bit sick. The first day was a little dizzy, but once in awhile
we would make an onward step if the ship happened to swing a little too
much. We slept in hammocks and they
were sure thick. Our beds hung over
our tables, that seemed a little odd. I am in
It kind of interest us to watch the German prisoners work. They have got a bunch of them here. They save us alot of work.
The crops here look pretty good but is is potatoes mostly.
You ought to see the engines here. They are little things. It would take about six of them to make one of ours, and the freight cars are about 15 feet long. The passenger cars are made with seats crossways of the car and a door at each side to. Two of the seats and eight person takes it up.
I haven't seen a wire fence yet. They make them out of lumber.
Coming down here we were going through tunnels half of the time, so you know there are a few hills.
Will close, answer soon.
