Toronto, Ont Nov 18 8-PM 1916
Bandsman S. Uffelmann
118 O.S. Batt.,
92 Kippendairs Ave.,
Toronto; Nov. 17/16.
Really I was surprised when I picked up your letter to-day, to find that it is dated Nov. 1st; and am sorry I did not answer sooner; but I know you are of an extremely patient and forgiving nature, and on these conditions I will continue writing to you.
But you know for over a week I’ve been
extremely busy preparing and sending off parcels to the boys at the Front.
But first of all I meant to thank you for the nice letter I received from you. I must congratulate you, you are a very good correspondent I think, and you are worthy of praise, all honour to you, Sheldon Uffelmann, my cousin.
Oh dear me I’ll have to go, there is com-
pany which is just arrived so you’ll have to excuse me a while and I’ll try and finish my chat to you latter, how will that do, old boy?
It is now after 10.30 and they have gone, but fear I cant spend long with you.
You did not say whether you received my last letter, however I except you did or I should not have heard so soon
from you. But do you know, I neglected to put your number on and I feared then maybe you would not get it; however it turned out O.K.
Glad to know you and Willie are still in the best of health and enjoying life as ever – take care of yourselves.
I saw by the paper that you and Willie had been Home on week end pass. How
often do you get such pass, every two weeks?
Come to Toronto when you can; maybe you could spend a weekend with us, could you? Try and do so!
Remember us to Willie Glassford is having a hard and exceeding-by dangerous time of it; still we pray and trust for the best. He and one other are in a German dug-out.
Best regards from all to you Willie & especially to yourself.
Your loving cousin,
Alice M. Ward
Write when you can. Alice.
Letter from F. Shepherd & all are well. Are you going Over-Seas before Xmas?
