Dearest Nellie -

I just found out that the Y. was not allowed to receive any more mail so I suppose that my mail is either at the post office for this area or has been returned to you. so when you write now please send it to the above address and may be I will get a few letters.

I was taken off the sick list and put on duty again this morning but I don't intend to work much as there is others to work.

I was at Coke Station this morning for a short time just out for exercise. those who were down town last night say that every one was out p[a]rading because of the War News. it sounds as if something was coming[.] hope all new that are good news are true, as I want to come home to stay.

The Kaiser has left his throne and the Crown Prince refuses to take his place so it sounds as if we were getting the best of them al[l]round.

I hope that it won't be many more letter[s] that I will have to write from here, and then I won't leave you any more unless you say so. see. for when I come back I am coming for you. I am going to send you something about wed. [Wednesday?] if noting prevents so watch the mail box and maybe I will have some of your letters by that time.

The Mayor told one of the K of Ps that all of us special duty men would be discharged by the last of this month. gee wouldn't I be glad.

Bye Bye sweetheart until I write again,

With love

Cook Frank R. Lane
