Just a line (?) you and yours are are all well as this leaves the boys of No. 1 Neurological. We are having a lot of English weather here which as you know calls for umbrellas and rain coats; it is very damp and chilly at night; and yet the sun seems so warm when it does put in its appearance. I saw Dr. Cone a short time ago he looked very well. We expect to move into our new place very soon now. I will be so glad when we get to work without (?) any one the misfortune of getting wounded. I (?) very hard to get away from the (?) of 3801. I guess all the locals feel the drag also. Capt. Hanson Capt Humphreys Capt. Childe also Capt. Stenail are well. I do not remember Dr Penfield if I thanked you for that. Book you sent me on the care of Neurological cases. It came just as we were leaving Ottawa I have enjoyed its contents and wish again to thank you for your kindness. I shall be pleased if you would convey my regards to the operating room staff also Miss Dawson and all on 6th floor. Things are much the same, only each day I he leave nearer Victory for the Allies. (?) you receive those few (?) I beg to remain yours. Sincerely Stanley."
