France, October 8, 1918

Dearest Emma;-

Your letter of Oct 3 has just come in. I have time to write you only a few lines, but wish to give you the glad tidings, for I have just heard from a reliable source that General Bell is not dead as was reported but is doing well and is on his way to England. I cannot tell you how relieved and pleased I feel. If you get a chance please call and see him, should he be sent to a London hospital. You may tell him that the “Exaggerated” report of his death gave me a very bad 48 hours.

The rain yesterday did not last long but the night that followed was too dark for Hun bombers. It was drizzling rain this morning but this afternoon is coming out warm and sunny.

Good bye for to-day

Your loving husband

Harold W. McGill
