June 7th 1917.
We have been awakened at 2 A.M. and told that we advance at 3. after gitting a few odds and ends together that we take with us in our pack not very many I can tell you. At five minutes to 3 we get orders to stand by our guns and to open up just at the tick of 3. I have never experienced anything like it in my life and I hope I never do again. Well (Macines) is
