Dearest Nellie -

Thursday morning and will write you a few lines and tell you some news.

I am feeling O.K. and expect to come home soon. they are discharging men every where and all the time, and the papers say that any one who asks for a discharge will get it, as they can not hold men against their will, and I sure want to get back to help cut the winters wood and get the corn in. the farmer boys and the ones who are married will get home first so I am told.

I got my pictures last night and will send one if I can get it in the envelope and if I can't I will bring it when I come. I think they are real good for the form of which they were taken. ha! ha!
I have a lot to tell you when I get home and I can hardily [sic] wait until I get there. tell you Pa to file the saws and get every thing in shape so we can make things hum.

I got my pay yesterday. $46.20/100 think I will send $40 home so watch the mail. I have not heard from McClure yet so don't know what to do about my Dr. Bill. I can't get any thing until he sends in his bill.

After the middle of next week don't write me any more until you hear from me as I may be on my way home and then I would miss my letter and always put return on the envelope.

hoping to hear or see you soon I am as every yours to love

Your soldier, ^intended^ h---d

Frank Lane
