It was last Tuesday, February 13th, at 4 o'clock in the morning, that we made an attack on the Germans, and I was in charge of a dozen men with bombs and bayonets. we got into the German front line, and I had just got a German prisoner, and marched him back to the officer in charge, when I got wounded in the right shoulder, and it became useless for the time being. I have a large piece of shrapnel just below the shoulder, and the doctor is trying to get my cold a little better before they operate on me. Well, I hope you are all well at home. Please write to my brothers for me, as it hurts to write too much. With best love to you and Sis.
