“Dere Mable:

“… Everythings covered with mud includin me. I seem to attract mud like I was a maggot, Mable. Yesterday I spent all the afternoon shinin up for guard sos to be the Colonels orderly. Then I step out of the tent and flui. The sargent says, ‘Smith dont you know enuff not to go on guard lookin like that?’
