My dearest Mother

Our train journey is just about at an end I am glad to say. We get to Halifax about 6 a.m. tomorrow. We have been a whole week on the road. Believe me it has been a most tiring trip, the worst I have ever made across, and that's saying a good deal. We passed over the new Quebec Bridge yesterday - first time I had been over - "some" bridge all right! Have been rather off colour since I wrote to you from Ottawa - slight attack of grippe, I think, nothing serious! Oliphant has been same way, in fact it has gone the rounds of our car, the dust has been so bad in our car, that likely we picked up the grippe microbe! Will send a line from Halifax if I have time.

Love to all,


Halifax NS APR16 3PM 1918
