Dear Mrs. McLean,

I desire to express to you my sincere sympathy in the recent decease of your husband, No. 799658 Pte. David McLean.

Who in sacrificing his life at the front in action with the enemy, has rendered the highest services of a worthy citizen.

The heavy loss which you and the Nation have sustained would indeed be dressing were it not redeemed by the knowledge that the brave comrade for whom we mourn performed his duties fearlessly and well as become a good soldier, and gave his life for the great cause of Human Liberty and the defense of the Empire.

Again extending to you in your bereavement my condolence and heartfelt sympathy.

I am

Yours faithfully,

E.A. Kemp

Minister of Militia and Defence for Canada

Mrs. Lettie McLean
52 Eastmont Ave
