Letter from National War Work Council of Young Men's Christian Associations of the United States.

Front of letter, "With the colors", picture of American glad and an upside down red triangle. Letter addressed to Mr. WH Hutchison of South Oshawa, Canada. Reads: "Dear Sir, My folks send me the letter you wrote my father. I am glad you rec'd. "Beauty" all O.N. but am sorry she was delayed so long. Hope the trip didn't hurt her any and don't suppose it did as she is a very healthy bitch. I've run across a few dogs since I've been in this camp. Seen an Eng Bull one pretty good heavy Boston and several Airedales. Some good ones. I saw and called as fine a young Airedale bitch to me one evening as one often sees. She had brass studded color and blue ribbon on her neck but no name on plate. So I couldn't find out who she belonged to but she was a real one. I was about 2 weeks and when I got able to get about some I noticed an Airedale bitch at a fine station close by and went over (of course) and talked about to the owner (a fireman) and he told me about a fellow in a different ward of the Hospital having a lot of Airedales and I went to see him and who do you think it was. It was Sergeant Fowler who... you suppose as I have myself read so much about in "Kennel Review". He always sent in pictures and write ups at Airedales and by game hunts in the West and South West, etc. Wrote from Mexican border quite a bit. Well he has been in the service 12 years he says, and is now 30 years old. He's a little wary fellow and not afraid of the devil from my opinion. He has 2 wild bear hides in his room and a big 43 six shooter holster. He is different than you and I he breeds for hunting [underlined] exclusively and don't care for show as we do but he breeds from the best winning streams. His dogs and pups are sure game all right and he has one Monarch bitch can do most anything but tells. He owns and has here that dog byle used to have signed by Ch. His Highness. I suppose you have often read of him as he is pretty widely known. Name El Collado Royalist. Had one ear torn off in fight. He says he always takes his dogs wherever he goes that is part of them a pretty good bunch although he says he also has a big kennel (Jack he calls it) somewhere in the southwest, in Texas. ...on around with some friend. How he gets by taking those dogs along in the Army I don't see but some of these old "Regulars" that are on the... get by with a lot that some fellows aren't. Well here is hoping the war's soon over so my brother and I can get back to the game again. My address may change at any time now as I signed a transfer this week and don't know what I will be transferred to get either but suppose I will get out of the infantry and hope so as they sure put you through and I don't like Infantry much. You can write me at present address and I will likely get it anyways if I do change or if you don't, write soon I can drop you a card with my new address and you then write me. Sincerely, Raymond A."
