24 May 1940
My dear Lauretta.
Things are happening so fast & furious that I just can’t find time to write. For your information my trunk & leather weekend bag are at Capt. G.N.T. Garrood D.F.C.
Hollyme Oak Rd.
All my souvenirs, albums autograph books are in it. My trunk is addressed Mrs. E Blais 9 Rue Sauvogeau Thetford Mines, Quebec, Canada. Do not be alarmed everything is quite alright. I have put my clothes there for safekeeping, while I am doing something else.?
I feel fine in great spirit but can’t tell you what the future has in store for me. Will write you in the course of the next few days. Sure miss you and baby a lot.
Excuse this rush letter.
Still Bank of Montreal London etc.
Lots of love
A big kiss and hug to both of you.
