Cameron of Lochiel to Lady Hermione Cameron, 20 November 1914 (2 of 2)

This letter was written by Donald Walter Cameron of Lochiel at Maida Barracks, Aldershot, to Lady Hermione Cameron at Buchanan Castle, Drymen on 20 November 1914. The following is a transcript of the parts of the letter which relate to the war:

the christening [of Marion Hester Cameron, infant daughter of Colonel Lady Cameron] go off?
I hope all right. I have not sent Mr Robertson a cheque. I think I will send him a fiver.

I heard of another house today which I handed over to Mrs Brown. What do you think we had better do as I have no time to look at houses myself. This last one certainly sounds the best.

When do you think you will come down & when are you going to Buchanan? No news here. I have had to remain in the Orderly Room all day waiting for orders.

Just got your wire, thank you so very much indeed. I shall not look for a letter tomorrow.
