14 letters and 2 postcards addressed to mother and other various family members. The first few letters are from a base in the United States. Subsequent letters are from Toulouse University in France where Fitzgerald is enrolled, his aspiration to become versed enough in the language to use it in French Commercial Law and French Banking Law. Fitzgerald writes little of his movements and other topics excepting his overwhelming desire to get back home, especially once peace is signed and the war is over. However, he is with the 1st Division and his return home is not secured as of the last of his letters in this collection.
