The last official figure of the land cultivated in this way in the zone of the British army was 000 acres, although in regent months the figure has been much increased. A great deal of new work had been done in the neighborhood of Peronne, and at Ham, Epehy and near Chauny. All this land had been ploughed with American tractors ploughs and a great deal of it planted with Another work which has been lost is that begun by the Quakers to succor the victims or the war in the territories won back from the Germans a year ago.

M. C. -A. and as there is always something going on to amuse us fellows, it isn't bad at all -if anything it is better than my first camp in the United States. The language is not hard to learn at least enough of it to get by with.

Nearly everybody we meet knows a little English, so we make out some way. Also there are quite a number in my company who can speak French. It may seem strange, but I don't realize I am away from the States, yet. But I suppose that feeling will change after I am separated from the outfit that I came over with. As it is, there is scarcely any change, other than the long hours of dayligbt.

We are housed in comfortable barracks, plenty of room and no quarantine. So altogether I think it is first-class. 1 have. any bf their famous wines as yet, but I suppose that will come in due time. Everything here is cheap compared to what we have been paying in the States.

I had a complete change laundried for only 34 cents. Good bye, love to all; will write soon. Tell all the boys, "This is the life." JOSEPH H. GAINES IS CANDIDATE FOR U. S.
