December 21, 1916 - Letter to his brother John from Bramshott Camp. Lots of talk of home and family, John on the farm, his sisters moving to Toronto, and brother Jim on leave before joining the fight in Europe. Spoke of still being in quarantine and of the death of two of his comrades, one by illness and one by accident.
