A protege of Roberts, an exuberant, likeable English youth, has written these letters from the onset of the war to the first of the year, at which time Roberts came to America on a lecture tour. They seem relatively calm in comparison with most of the material we have seen; ""Jim"" has not been exposed to the worst buffeting. He was attached to a Major in France, as secretary, then back in England. The letters from a record of his daily activities, the people he knew, conversations, routine. They ref seen ight, great appreciation, a est for life and people. But they seem a bit slight, leas topical in interest than most of them.
