We were in Algeria for a while but have been in Tunisia for some time. No doubt you have either heard about the North African campaign or read about it. "We have seen quite a bit of action, lost some men but things are not too bad. I am certainly getting tired of planes flying around all the time. The planes are pretty bad, but I guess the allies have air superiority. Hope that things are going o. k. at home. "We have had no mail for two months. Hope to get some soon. The boys are all in good spirits, but we want the war to end soon. North Africa is quite a place. It is not at all what you would expect it to be. The people are mostly French or Arab with a few Italians mixed in. "This part is very productive and they raise a lot of wheat. The farms are large, most o£ them 1,000 or more acres. There are lots of oranges but most of them, are quite sour. They raise quite a lot of sheep and goats and cattle. Everyone drinks wine with their meals instead Dates are cheap and while we get eggs and chickens by trading clothes or canned food. The people around the country side will not sell things as there is very little they can buy with money. We get about 75 francs for one dollar. Everything is real cheap and the francs go a lonjj way. The beer in Algeria is the best I have tasted anywhere since I left home. "We are getting lots of practice at digging holes and believe me we sure get in them when the Stukas dive on us. One nice thing is that the weather is veiy pleasant. We can go around in our shirt sleeves in the daytime and it is not too bad at night. I have never seen such moonlight nights in my life. You can actually read by moonlight. "Well, a Merry Christmas to you son and to you all. AH my love and I hope to see you soon.
