Apr. 3, 1918
Am nearing Billings, Montana.
When we were in Lincoln it thundered, lightnined [sic] rained
and snowed and all day today went through deep snow.
All we saw today was snow and sage brush, rocks, bluffs and
plains and now since we got into Montana itís getting less till now we
see green grass. Saw the
mountains out a distance, also General Custerís battle field a few
minutes ago. Saw quite a
few Indians. I wouldnít
live in Wyoming if they gave me the state, all they have there are
Mr. Ditman from Atlantic is on the train (Liby Dittmanís
father). He is going to
visit his daughter in this state.
Feel fine but awfully stiff.
Tell the rest.
