About Letter 235
Bill is in the 51st. Evacuation Hospital in Stuttgart but he says " don't get excited because all I've got is a case of the worms." The hospital is on a high hill overlooking all of Stuttgart." Bill notes that "from here one would never know that the city is merely an empty shell of what it once was." He struggles to write on a German typewriter. The scent of Fall is in the air and the Germans are working hard at the harvest, "or at least the women are. It would seem the men do very little here in Germany but start wars."
