1919. From the author of Dere Mable and Love Letters of a Rookie. From the dust jacket: Here's the immortal Bill again and -still the same old Bill! He's just getting the finishing touches to his military education-his rookie days are over-and he's piling up a heap of amusement for himself (and for others!) in the last hectic days before his departure overseas. His final letters to Dere Mable from camp, and his inimitable ones from the transport, are one long laugh. There's no let-up of uproarious humor from first page to last.
