Motl, to the Home News. In 'the'jmrty besides Mr. Mott, lire Cli.irlcs Mnnuehaii, GeurKe Orpen mid CJcorgo Van IX-rveer. Mr. Mutt's letter la hs follows: Camp Middlesex, Atlantic Highlands: To the Kditor of The Home News: Sir: A week has rolled around since we left old New Brunswick and It wcnis only a Tew hours, time goes so faiit. We have had line weather, so cool and no mos-piHoes. We have not used our nettlnR slnee we have tieen here. The cam of that is, we are over 1300 feet up in the air and the mosquitoes get tired before they fly up to the top of the hill, and have to drop back. Of course, we are not sorry. Fishing Is good. You'enn cat eh all you want for five cents apiece. We never saw soft elams so thick, and they are fine, Our boys are all gaining in weight. Monaghan can't get his hat on his head, it has grown so. Van IVrveer'B feet have grown so large ho had to put an extension to Ills shoos. Orpen ran t wear a collar for the fat on his neck and I had to cut a big V in my pants. Our friends will not know us when we return. . . Saturday we had a pleasant visit from the popular foreman of Nc;tune KiiKine Company, Rugcne Mount. He stayed until Sunday and we went past the First M. E. Church. Tuesday we were favored with a visit from five jolly good fellows namely, the popular young lawyer of Elizabeth. Samuel Sclilelnier, Otto I, fictrtiek, Curd. Watson, Isaac Kilhourn and, last, but not least, Nick Thill, the painter ,ot the Sixth Ward. We were glad to tjee these friends and were proud of them. As soon as they arrived Nick grabbed the hatchet and like George Washington, he cut down every tree in siEht, and then he and Cant. Watson went in bathing. They flopped around so that all the fish went scampering around Sandy Hook to sea. and there hasn't a blamed one come back yet. The salt water, you know, feels good to a fresh water lobster, or an inland crab, and so it was with Kick. He wanted to take home some of the water, and so he wore his soaked shirt, underclothing and socks home, expecting to wring them out when he reached the great Sixth Ward. We were sorry they picked out such a hot day. The temperature was 27S when they landed here. Now, you know. Otto couldn't stand much of that before his pulse would jump clean out of his mouth. We had a good time in spite of the heat, anil we hope they did. It was the hottest day we bad. William Orpen, Sr., lias been with us for three or four days, and is feeling fine for a man" of his age. Well, I have been up since 5 o'clock, and I am getting hungijjBlfctyyijit ,wrjlt-any raore on an empty stomah, so I will close. With best wlsties to all "our friends, I remain yours, ' '- .
