There is a slight hole dug into the ground with some pieces of boards, poles and scantling over it, and then some dirt put of the top of them, so that Fritz cannot discover it very well, and one side of it covered up with a few boards, a sand bag and an old overcoat hanging over it to break the wind. (The other side of the place is wide open.) Of course, this 'house' is not waterproof by any means, but good luck, we have only had part of one day wet since we came into the trenches this time." He continued, "I spent my birthday in the trenches and it was certainly a lovely day, just delightful. I thought of you all at home more than once and wondered if Dad were fishing.. I suppose you had a lovely time at camp meeting. I heard about it all. Isn't it funny how news travels?" Huffman was later promoted to the rank of Corporal.
