Dear Miss Corcoran –
The following is an extract from a letter, dated the 2nd instant, from Mr. Corcoran in France which was received in the office here today by Mr. Holland –
"I was slightly wounded over the left
"eye and just below the left knee about
"a week ago. I am in the 73 General
"Hospital at present but will be back
"with the Battalion in a few weeks. A
"shell dropped in the trench – the whole
"bunch got it, all blighties but mine.
"My left eye has all the colors of the
"rainbow yet. I can hardly hear at all
"now but that will be all right in a day
No doubt you have received similar information from Mr. Corcoran.
We are very pleased to learn that his wounds are not serious – perhaps it would have been well had his been a 'Blighty' too.
He mentioned some time ago that possibly he might go to England for a commission. We hope he does – it would take them away from the Front for a time – and in the bad weather too.
Very truly yours,
Miss. Winnifred Corcoran,
