This letter was written by a soldier who was in France with the 72nd Infantry Brigade, 36th Infantry Division. He was writing the letter on Christmas Day, 1918. He was located at Tanlay, Department of Yonne. From the letter…..

   If the shadow of some sorrow face heavily on thy soul today, if in answer to Providential Call you have mead sacrifices, so that others may be happy, then far beyond all human gladness come the message of Christmas, telling of our Savior’s Birth and soothing the aching sadness.
