Mother Mine- Just received your letter dated Nov. 25 it had gone to Sect. 18 and then on to 30. Now we are to be addressed as: S.S. U. 642 Pat B.C.M. Convois Automobiles Paris France So far have not received the pkgs you have sent me, but as the mails are very congested, parcels are very slow in arriving. Received two pkgs today from Marguerite, 16 bars hand soap, 4 laundry, sugar, chocolate, dates, malted milk, bouillon cubes, chewing gum, matches, cards, checkers, and a woolen muffler. Had a pkge of tobacco from Paul Tyler and a pkge of sweets and toilet articles from Kathryn Joyce. There are 10 of we boys in one room and we are all a happy family. All boxes are open to all. Returned from front post the 27th. There is practically nothing doing in this sector at all. The French do practically all the shooting. There were only three German shells came in while I was on post and they were ½ to ¾ of a mile away. The German planes have been quite active, but they are for observation mostly. Don’t want you to worry about me over here, as about all we lack is steam heat and electric lights now. Have written Theron and Jack both, had letter and photo from Theron. Had a letter from Frank, bookkeeper I left to watch Mr. Taylor in the business, and will answer it tomorrow evening. You can tell him I want him to keep E.O.W. advised as to conditions at the office (in person) at all times and to write me concerning them also. Well mother mine, I love and think of you as always and just so I know you are well it is not necessary to write lengthy letters as I know you have plenty to occupy your time. As Always, Your son Ted. Ambulance 1853. TO: Mrs. Florence Littlefield 2528 Madison Ave. Ogden, Utah U.S.A. FROM: E.A. Littlefield SSU 64R Par BCM Paris France. Somewhere in France Dec. 29, 1917
