had gone missing. Had he left the country or was he in a tree shaded house. Also most wonderfull of all one of the hotel men had refused a check in payment of an a/c because the lady offering it was not legally forced to pay. We hear strange & wonderfull roumors here, but if that tale of the check is true it is the most surprising thing I have heard during this war & that is saying a lot, A Canadian nurse told me she belived Asquith had the Hampshire blown up to get rid of Kitchener as Asquith did not intend to let us win as he was a pro german & Kitchener had found it out. I was too surprised to answer back & belive the lady went off thinking I thought as she did. Please give my respect to Mrs Tregillus who I hope is quite well also the Kiddies I hope people will help to keep the Kiddies from forgetting us. It will hurt if we have lost thier straight eye & great acquatiance.

Regards to all & Sundry Yours Truly Ernest Seeley
