Camp Stoneman
Pittsburg, Calif.
Dear Dr. Stoughton,
I have enclosed a money order which I hope you will give to the treasurer. I regret that I was unable to continue as I had said I would, but my brothers illness which you know of from my last letter meant that I had to help out as much as I could. He is getting along very well now and expects to return to work soon. Warren’s illness was not quite as serious as it could have been. No spots or cavities but was on the verge and he had to have bed rest before he did get tuberculosis.
We have been going through very rigorous training and as you can see from my new title, I have made some progress. Although my mailing address is still Camp Stoneman, I have been stationed at Camp Knight in Oakland where Army methods of transportation are taught. The outfit is divided between the two camps now

and we are in fact being staged for our voyage somewhere. Whether it will materialize or not is the subject of our rumor clinic which you know exists in all army outfits.
I have been looking forward to the Wagner literature that I have been receiving and I hope that I shall continue to get it. As I told you in another letter, I am deeply concerned with Wagners future and I follow avidly the news that the Bulletin reveals. I hope that she shall as far as possible be a symbol of Christian culture especially now when the whole world seems to have lost sight of His message. Yours is the responsibility and [promise] of seeing Wagner through this crisis and my thoughts are often with you — for your strength, courage, and success.
Sincerely,
Edwin Klare
