Mr. D.D. Dennis

Dear Sir

I am enclosing some pictures which were the property of Pte. Wm. Dennis it will no doubt cause you pain to receive them, but I thought it my clear duty to return them I was close behind Private Dennis when he was hit and while taking his rations and ammunition from him (as we were instructed to do in the case of men who were killed in action) I came upon the enclosed and would have forwarded them to you before, but got a bullet through my own throat later in the same day.

It will I know console his relations to know that he died fighting, a soldier and a man that Canada can be proud of, also that his death was painless and instantaneous.

Kindly accept my heart felt sympathy.

Yours Sincerely,
E. Reynolds
