92 Kippendairs Ave.,
Toronto; Nov. 17/16.
Dear Sheldon;-
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

[Page 2]
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

[Page 4]
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

[Page 5]
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?
