Show full item record

Author: Dale, Carson J., 1888-1916
Abstract: Carson, stationed at Bristol, writes that he advises several Americans wanting to enlist in the English Army to stay out of the war unless they wanted a hard life. The Americans listened to the advice and headed back to the states. Carson adds that he is growing tired of camp life and is sick of being moved around the country. He is anxious to see combat and if the chance doesn’t come soon he will desert the army. In an attempt to avoid desertion, Carson asks his sister to send proof of his American citizenship so that he can be discharged. It is not an attempt to avoid being sent to the front but avoid more of camp life. In addition, Carson mentions his dislike for England, the inter-racial marriages, and describes the pictures enclosed with the letter. The pictures mentioned by Caron were not included with the collection. 6 pages
