This has been a wonderful day. The
good news first of the success at
the Front by the Allies. At the
Canteen we had five troop trains,
3,000 men. Every one of them
was fed, [given?] coffee & iced tea, cake,
sandwiches, tobacco, chewing gum,
post cards, magazines and good
cheer. We had a piano on the
platform and furnished music
while they were here. They enter-
tained us too. Some of the boys
had magnificant voices. It is
all as worthwhile. Mary handed
out tobacco. She said, " 'oldier 'ome".
We entertained Mr. Ringer & W. M.
Brown at dinner this eve.
