1Dear, May got a wire this afternoon to say George was coming to say
2good bye tomorrow before he goes off to the Front. I do hope its to
3France & not the Dardanelles. It will be so hard for his mother who is
4so far away. When we last had news Oliver was still all right fighting
5away in France. I wonder if I shall ever see you & Alice again!
7I am very happy here with dear May, as happy as I can be anywhere in
