Cameron of Lochiel to Lady Hermione Cameron, 11 November 1914 (2 of 2)

This letter was written by Donald Walter Cameron of Lochiel at Maida Barracks, Aldershot, to Lady Hermione Cameron at 4 Carlton Terrace, Edinburgh on 11 November 1914. The following is a transcript of the parts of the letter which relate to the war:

...& Eustace Crawley [Major Eustace Crawley 1868-1914]. Who will be left is the question? Thank goodness Malise is all right so far [Lord Douglas Malise Graham 1883 – 1974, Lady Hermione’s brother]. Angus Mackintosh is I believe going on well [Captain Angus Alexander Mackintosh of Mackintosh, younger, 1885-1918; wounded at Ypres in 1914].

I have not seen General Fergusson lately [General Sir Charles Fergusson, Bart. 1865 – 1951] but he is to lecture again on Thursday.

Here there is very little news of any sort. I went to tea with Lady Hunter on Sunday. Lord Dunedin
[Andrew Graham Murray, Baron Dunedin, later 1st Viscount Dunedin 1849 – 1942, politican and judge and former Secretary for Scotland] was there, also Sir Edward & Lady Carson [Sir Edward Henry Carson, later Baron Carson 1854-1935, lawyer and Irish Unionist politician, best remembered for his part in the trial of Oscar Wilde] and Sir Philip Trotter [Colonel Sir Philip Durham Trotter 1844-1918].

I hear the new Battalion comes down here on the 21st.

Well I don’t know I have any more news. With my best of love…
