Letters from Oregon Boys in France
Compiled by Mrs. Frank Wilmot 1918
An interesting letter from William Scott, a member of the Hdqt. Detachment, 166th Field Artillery Brigade, written to his mother, Mrs. John A. Scott, 632 Tillamook Street, in which he enclosed a greeting from King George to the American soldiers on their way to France. It is as follows:
It is interesting to know that his regiment is located near a very beautiful summer resort, where the Crown Prince of Germany used to stay part of the time, but that is now utilized as a hospital for American soldiers.
He closes his letter by saying:
I would certainly like a taste of the jelly and preserves you are making but it is very hard to get an order to have things sent over and I should hate to ask it anyway, as they need every inch of room in the ships to bring over necessary supplies. We will just let Christmas slide by this year because of this fact.
Please send me a letter or, if you want to, a wee check would be just right. Heaps of love,
