Cameron of Lochiel to Lady Hermione Cameron, 21 November 1914

This letter was written by Donald Walter Cameron of Lochiel at Maida Barracks, Aldershot, to Lady Hermione Cameron at Buchanan Castle, Drymen on 21 November 1914. The following is a transcript of the parts of the letter which relate to the war:

Just a line to say I am still here & we are still hanging on in case of eventualities. It is very boring sitting here all day. I have no letters of special interest & very little news.

I have heard no word of a house yet. I hope you are still corresponding about it. We must take one soon & chance it. Or shall we wait until you come down.

There seem to be a few about. When are you coming? I hope soon or I may be flown.

Do you remember if 2 letters of mine were posted last Sunday, one to Alistair Davy & another to Gow, as I have had no answer to either. I wish you would enquire.
