Feature Letter of July 27th, 2017
Ross, James Wells
Here we are still in a quiet peaceful spot. We hardly get enough exercise to keep us fit. The Major is away on sick leave and I don't know when he will be back, so I am O.C. again. But the worst of it is that I was expecting to get my leave from Aug. 6th to 13th and everything seemed fine until the Major went. I only get a weeks leave Mother, so don't think of coming across that awful ocean. It would only make you miserable to see me for so short a time. I often think how fortunate we were when I came through Ypres alright. If I had got hit you might have been on the Lusitania with Mrs. Ryerson and Mrs. Young.
