Sunday Night.
Oct 10-1916

Dearest Mother:

Capt. Cox, Senior Mustering Officer here, advises us that we will prabably get definite orders from Washington about Wednesday of this week. We note that Lieut. J. P. Fyffe has been ordered to Oglethorpe to escort a number of recruits to the Border the middle of the week. It is likely that we will be sent along with this bunch. In that event, we will probably go to Oglethorpe first, and will be able to see you again before entraining for El Paso. Will wire you as soon as hear anything definite.

Telephoned the Times office last night to report the drowning of a member of the third regiment, whom I thought was a Chattanooga boy. He proved to be from Bristol. Talked to Ellsworth Brown, and told him to ‘phone you that we were well and happy.

We received a letter from Margaret this morning.

Devotedly,
Adolph.
