About Letter 170
Bill writes to his worried parents after 10 days between letters. He says that "Really it was unavoidable. In 3 more days I will have spent an entire month in a foxhole on the lines." Bill describes his appearance saying, "You should see the beard I've got. About 3/8" long and red. It would be even redder if I wasn't so dirty. I look sompin' fierce."
