Vickers Says Write Men in Service Importance of Correct Address Is Stressed To The Paris News: I know that you probably never expected to hear from me. but I haven't forgotten my friends back home, although I can't write them all at one time, or I could say, in or.c isor-tH for I stay pretty busy these days.

That is something else I know for I have worked in the Fleet Postoffice here for the last month and you should see some of the addresses you find on these letters, and these boys want their letters. If you should publish this letter I would be very glad for I want my friends to know they are not forgotten, and also want to stress the fact that they should write tne boys more and be careful to get the correct p.e.dresses for they are
