GWL 12th April 1917

Things seem to be going well in France.  I wonder what difference America coming in will make.  There ought to be a good deal of money available over there.  A monstrous warm day again.  A letter came from you to-day.  A forerunner they say of a mighty mail.

So you have seen the King.  The last time I saw him was at Winchester just before we went out.  Many many years ago that seems now.  A new horse and a mule have arrived; both good.  Alas, the Hun had to go to hospital.  He got gout or something like that.  We are now called the Army Machine Gun School!”

Following the American entry into the war South American countries began to declare their allegiances with Brazil and Bolivia severing diplomatic relations with Germany.
