June 17, 1916
Dear brother Julius:
Before I go to bed, I’ll write you just a few lines.
I have made all my arrangements and expect to sail to-morrow [sic]. At headquarters here, I was told that we are absolutely prohibited from corresponding with newspapers, so I will have to give up that idea of making any side money. Even letters to my family are not supposed to be printed in a newspaper.
Traveling alone has been a little lonesome, but it will be much better when I join the fifteen or sixteen others to-morrow [sic]. I am told that they are all very fine college men.
That I may get a good night’s rest, I will close with love to all,
Ever your affectionate brother,
