France, Oct 24, 1918

Dearest Emma;-

I have been very busy the past two days but not under shell fire at all. I have time for only a few lines now but after tomorrow should be able to write you more regularly for a time. I have just finished a note to the Lockport Community Club thank them for the parcel they sent me. I should have done it a week ago.

My cousin L.S. McGill was in to see me this afternoon. He has come through all the recent fighting without a scratch. He tells me he called to see you when he was on leave but that you were out.

I am pleased to know that you saw General Bell and found him doing well. Major G.S. Whitaker of Calgary had lunch with us a day or two ago and I saw Billy Bryan on the street to day. We also had Major Ings with us for one day. No, he is not getting command of the unit Merci Dieu.

Your letters of Oct. 18 & 19 respectively reached me to-day. Please do not worry about me, dear. I am in no more danger of being injured here than I should be of being run over by a taxi or bus in London.

Never forget though that I am seldom without a thought of you.

Yours ever in love,

Harold W. McGill
