better things. Too bad they got that splendid boat the Justica the other day. Funny you know I dreamt that she had been torpedoed before the news was published. I think it happened to be the exact day too, wasn't it a curious coincidence, because it wasn't a boat I know at all & I hadn't been thinking about the boat at all before. I think it was awfully queer, really. I told Oliphant my dream when I woke one morning & he remembered my telling him distinctly (when he saw the news in the paper). I received 3 fine blocks of maple sugar from Uncle Edward the other day, wasn't it nice of him to remember me. By the way none of the chocolate has fetched up yet but I expect it will do any day.

Much love to you.

Your loving son
