Letter to Oscar Ladley's mother, sisters, and Ann Griswold from Camp Jackson. Oscar writes that many of the men "break guard" to sneak out of camp. He also writes that many officers are pressuring privates to stay in the service for three years; however, he isn't interested in reenlisting because how differently the privates are treated from the officers in the service.
