My dear Margaret –

I hope you have not been thinking me too neglectful in not having written sooner, but that is really not the case this time. At any rate you have been in my thoughts continually. The fact is I have been waiting until I could write you something definite about coming down to see you, but even yet I am not able to do this, Bert & Vester have asked me to motor down to Sebringville with them on Saturday and they would of course bring me in to Stratford Saturday night. I think I would enjoy motoring down, but the only thing is that perhaps they might not go – one never can tell. However, if the weather is nice I rather think they will go so you may see me then, if that would be convenient to you.

I was sorry I did not get down last Saturday, but your note came rather late as mine evidently did too and we were more than busy at the office with urgent work, so that it would have been most difficult for me to get away. However, I hope to see you soon.

Mother and I would love to have you come any time Margaret. I was going to suggest your coming up but thought perhaps you might not care to come. I think a little change would help a lot. The girls whom you met here were very sorry to hear of your great loss, and I think Mrs. Ruttle is writing to you.

Hanover has just suffered a great loss in the death in action of Major Musgrove D.S.O. a true patriot and soldier. One of the noble things he wrote his wife sometime ago was that if he should fall she must always remember "that the cause is greater than the individual".

How is Rhea? Have been expecting a reply to my letter, but I suppose everything is very unsettled at her home.

Shall try to let you know as soon as I can about our plans for Saturday.

Love, as ever
