The following letter has been received by Rev. Bethea from his brother who is Field Officer in France:
Aug. 18, 1918
I am now living in the most beautiful Chateau I have had yet. It is hundreds of years old and quite famous in history. The yards, parks and lakes, etc., around it are lovely beyond description.
I am rooming with Major Maes and Major Faxton, the latter commands one of my companies. We have a room about as large as the two large front rooms at home including the hall. It has the old curtains and furniture of its palmy days.
I am now going to take a long trip in a new part of the country tomorrow; will take Maes with me and we are planning to have a nice time of it.
With love, J.A. Bethea
