William S. Duvall Writes a Cheery Communication to His Mother

William S. Duvall, of the U. S. Forces in France, has written a cheery letter to his mother in Sykesville. He says he is having a good time and that his greatest trouble is to try to understand the French people and to make them understand him. If he stays long enough, he says, he will be able to understand and speak French. He says France is a fine country and he has enjoyed looking over many fine farms. At the time the letter was written he had not been in the fighting, but that was a month ago. It takes about a month to exchange letters. The young soldier says he is in the best of health and tells his mother not to worry about him.
