Letters Home

from Fort Flagler, Washington




03 Apr 1918

Fort Flagler, Wash.


We are near the Wyo. Line.  This is some country, snow banks, pine bluffs, etc.  Just went through a tunnel.  Was dark as pitch for a few minutes.  We did not even change cars at Lincoln.  Have awful nice people.  The conductor told us we could settle down for a few days.  A lady got on at Omaha and is going to Spokane, Wash., so we have company.  We are going to get beds tonight.  Sun is just coming up.
