#15 Can. Gen. Hospital
My dear Ma & Junie;
Believe it or not, I am sitting in bed, what a relief; My doctor has just [??] it and I am doing fine, will be up on a rolling chair by Jan 15 and walking around by Feb’y 1st.
At that rate I ought to be home by Easter.
I am so relieved at feeling like myself again.
I see by the morning papers Lord Halifax is our new Minister in U.S.A. He is a great man and a great Diplomat. May be a bit soft, on the fighting side; however he’ll do.
My friend Mr Eden has taken another high post. But we sure hate to loose him as War Minister, he was a hony. Before I leave for home I will call on him, to see what I can do for his dep’t in America, “Foreign Affairs”. Don’t worry I’ll get something soft somewhere.
I will also see Beaverbrook “Max Aitken” one of our Canuck. I am in great spirit today. More & more gifts are pouring in from my friends here.
Will try and be cheerful for Xmas, in two days. – but miss you all a lot.
Now don’t worry about me. I’ll not be evacuated till they’re positive I can make the trip, and a reliable boat.
Got a nice letter from Nellie yesterday, also 2 from Junie.
Will write often
Lots of love
