old Al out, was awfully sorry to hear he had been so seedy. Shingles must be a rotten complaint to get, and he has got to go easy and not kill himself with work. You remember Reid got shingles and I think it was brought on through overwork. I expect Al is half starving himself too, playing that old game of his, working all morning on an empty stomach, he hardly ever had a decent breakfast to my knowledge. I heard from Oliphant, there had been some great changes in Victoria in Military circles. McGuire has taken Seeley Smith's place as G.S.O. and that they have a new G.O.C. What has happened to Leckie and who is the new man in his place?
