Dearest Emma;-
I have not heard from you since we parted at Gare St. Lazare and I am rather anxious to be assured of your safe arrival in London. However, I quite understand that there has not yet been time for a letter to reach me although it is over a week since I last saw you.
You will notice that my pen is out of business. The ink ran out while I was writing a letter to my brother this afternoon. I borrowed a pen with which to write the address on the envelope. I shall likely be able to locate some ink to-morrow.
The weather here keeps quite cold and I see by the papers that you are having it somewhat severe in England. I hope that you are able to secure a place near the fire in the evenings.
We have had no further news of demobilization except that our turn comes after the First division which follows the Third. The Third is being demobilized this month. It will likely be April before we get started. In the meantime I shall try to get out of the unit and make England. In any case the division will go to England for demobilization.
I shall write you again to morrow. Excuse this short epistle please.
Your loving husband
Harold W. McGill
