Abe WW1 October 1918 Letter

William Abram O’Kelly Jr. to his father and sisters

Dear Folks:
Arrived here this am about 2 am. I have a nice barracks and a real cotton matress to sleep on and believe me, I am going to do some sleeping the first opportunity I get.

I am well and feeling fine. I hope Papa and Bootsie have entirely recovered from their attack of “flu”.
There is no news to write about so will close with lots of love and kisses to all.

Write to me often
Good bye
