Thank you so much for your darling letter of 27th. Don’t worry about Col. Ross’s circular, you sent it me some days ago & I sent it on to Charles Mackenzie to deal with.

It is awfully sad about poor Willie Ellice & the Bulwark
[William Ellice 1898-1914, died in the accidental explosion of HMS Bulwark near Sheerness on 26 November 1914, aged 15]. Sandy [Alexander Ellice 1894-1916, brother of William Ellice, killed in action 1916] who is here is naturally very much cut up. I shall try & write Edward [Major Charles Edward Ellice 1858-1943, father of William and Alexander Ellice]...
