No dear I mean to stick it out as long as I am able + I feel able to hold up my end yet even if I do get a bit stiff in the joints at times.

I am sorry Mrs. is taking things the way she has. Poor Harry must feel it very much, & I really don't think that it is altogether the boys fault

I see poor Fulkner of Salt Spring is killed, I suppose that it is the same one that was on Corhelts place. Tell Mrs. [illegible] that I am going to bring my bacon back with me + I know I shall find a lovely home awaiting me & heaps of love.

Harry. O Allen
