 Twice-A-Week News
Mount Ayr, Ringgold County, Iowa
date clipped off


Mr. and Mrs. W. W. HUNTER, of near Algona, formerly of the Tingley vicinity, received the following letter from their son, Cpl. Doyle J. HUNTER, who is serving with the armed forces in Africa:

"I have not written to you for at least a month, so today, Christmas day, I thought I should try to rite you a bit. Time lately has gone fairly fast though I might say there have been rather tedious and tiresome hours.

"We have not received any mail from the States for over three months. However, I did get a letter from Eldon MAIN yesterday. It was dated October 24th and he was in Northern Ireland.

"This year has seemed less like Christmas than any I have spent so far. Last year I thought I was bad off because I couldn't get home for the holidays but I was in the States at least. This year I'm thankful to be alive and am hoping to get back to the States. It is almost funny the way one can go on and looking back realize how easy we had things a year ago.

"I went to church services this morning - Holy Communion - though it was conducted by a minister of the Church of England and their services are somewhat different than ours."
