dc.description.abstract Carson writes from France where he has been stationed for about 3 weeks. He is ill and though the type of illness is unstated, he can barely speak louder than a whisper. His responses to letters have been delayed due to insufficient funds for purchasing paper and stamps. There is also a shift in his attitude about warfare due to the things he has seen, which have given Carson reasons to think more about religion. Some details of time in the trenches are given and the sights have left him with no appetite. Lastly, Carson mentions that it will be his last letter until he leaves the trenches. 4 pages en_US
