France, June 2, 1918

Dearest Emma:-
Your letter of May 27 came this morning. I did not write you yesterday as I was very busy all day. In the afternoon we held our C.R.S. sports which had been postponed from May 24 on account of rain. The weather was perfect yesterday and the sports turned out a great success. The G.O.C. of the division attended, also the D.D.M.S. of the Corps, the A.D.M.S. division and I do not know how many more “Brass hats”. The were quite a good representation of Imperial and American officers. The last item on the program was a baseball game between the team from our Divisional train and the team from an American battalion. The Canadians won by quite a large score. In the evening we had a concert but I did not go. We censored the mail between 12 o’clock and l this morning.
To day has been very fine but the roads are very dusty and we need rain. I was away taking part in a game of indoor baseball this afternoon. Baseball is a game I have never played and I find the art a very hard one to acquire so late in life.
I may get a chance to go up and see Margaret some day this week and I am writing her to that effect to night. The enemy has been shelling the town where she is and I have been somewhat anxious, although I hear none of the shells fell near the C.C.S.
Found out some particulars about leave this afternoon. The medical service has been allotted only two leave warrants per month per division so I fear I shall not get my turn until near the end of the summer.
How would you like to go back to Canada? The O.C. has just shown me a communication to the effect that my services are required in M.D. 13 Calgary. I have not the slightest idea of what this may mean, and the O.C. is replying (at my request) that I cannot be spared for the present. Tell me when you write what you think of it.
Ever yours dearest
Harold W. McGill
