In Kingston's letter to his mother, he describes his current activities in Thisancourt, France. He writes that he finally received his mother's second letter, that he cannot find a German helmet with a spike, his plans for his upcoming ten day leave, snowball fights among French soldiers, boar hunts in France, news he has heard about the influenza epidemic in Canton and Cheney, and Kingston's satisfaction with his decision to serve with the French army, as opposed to the American army. This letter was sent from Thisancourt, France.
