Belgium, March 24, 1919

Dearest Emma;-

It has been a most miserable day. This morning there was some snow on the ground and rain has been falling practically all day. The weather is not by any means cheering and there was no letter from you in the mail.

Demobilization news is a bit more reassuring to-day. We have turned in all our horses and equipment and our married men are leaving to-night. The A.D.M.S says we are likely to get away in about a week. It will take us 3 or 4 days at least to reach Bramshott after we leave here. I shall be extremely pleased when we are on our way. You may disregard what I said to you about going home alone for unless the strike comes on we should be in England within a couple of weeks. I hear we are all to get 8 days leave when we get to England. What about that room?

I hear that post graduate courses are being started in London for Overseas M.D.s. Personally I am not much interested. I cannot see why some of us could not have been given the opportunity to do some of this post graduate study during the past few months instead of wasting our time over here. Please pardon me if I seem in ill temper. Really I am most happy in the prospect of seeing your dear self within a comparatively short time.

Your loving husband

Harold W. McGill
