About Letter 107
Bill's aunt Jessie Bonser comes from her home in State College, Pa. to visit him at Camp Reynolds. His unit spends Independence Day marching through local towns as they return from bivouac. The war news is good but Bill's enthusiasm is tempered by his notion that "certain commentators try and make it appear that every victory is due solely to the efforts of the 'Great Man' [Roosevelt]." Bill closes his letter with another humorous sketch.
