plan from Wilson & W. S. they as a people showed that they know how to fight to the bitter end & when a war once starts it is best to carry on to a compleet victory. Please say in your next if the 25$ & letter telling of my sending it via Pay M reached you. Give my regards to all my old friends up there not forgetting the Kiddies. I hope your Quartz Claim is proving up well or that you have been able to put a deal through for it. Living must be very high there now. My sisters who are good houskeepers & also keep a/cs say it costs 3 times as much all round to live in England now as it did in 1914 Jan Feb & March. Please give my respects to Mrs. Tregillus also Frank Stevens wished to be remembered to you

I am Yours very truly Ernest Seeley
