from Mrs Percy McKechnie Portage La Prairie R.R. No 1 Box 19. Manitoba

Dec. 15/17.

Dear Mrs Allison

You will doubtless be surprised to hear from me & also at the manner in which I addressed this envelope but I did not know your husband's initials and thought some one else might get this letter. Mother, Father and I have just arrived back from Winnipeg where we have been to see the B.C. 68th Batt. boys away as my only brother has enlisted in that Batt. & of course you can know how we felt at parting with him but proud of him as well Mother has taken it very hard indeed
