3Dear old Man
5I send a note to Ol as I don’t know where to address it. I hope you
6will get his letter soon. It will be good for you to see his
7handwriting. I can’t help feeling anxious & I don’t know what the
8nature of the wound in the elbow was like. I might mean much or very
9little. I only hope they will send him home for a good rest, t even if
10the wound be not too serious.
12Good bye, dear. I know you’ve been so anxious that what has happened
13has not added to your burdens – bad as the news is.
