Hale, Robert

May 24, 1915

Well dear Alice, I am so glad you like the photos and the bracelet. After the war is finished I may bring some of the bunch to tea and I may not be we will try. I am glad you think of me sometimes darling and even dream. Do you know dear, you are always in my mind now and never out of it? I had a dream last week. I will tell you what it was. Our battery had been in action and suffered very heavily. I was wounded and I seemed to be in a big room but the nurses were all French. Then I saw a vision of you standing at the bed with your arms out calling to me. But between you and I there was a wide gap and I could not cross it. You waited for a long time and then you smiled and said I will come back dear. Then you went away. That was a funny dream. Do you know dear when I woke up I was greatly upset. I could not understand it and cannot yet. Can you?
