Cameron of Lochiel to Lady Hermione Cameron, 2 December 1914

This letter was written by Donald Walter Cameron of Lochiel at Maida Barracks, Aldershot, to Lady Hermione Cameron at Buchanan Castle, Drymen on 2 December 1914. The following is a transcript of the parts of the letter which relate to the war:

I have not had a moment to write the last 3 days.

My Mother is tremendously looking forward to seeing you for the week end & it would disappoint her awfully if you did not go to her.

I am dining with Sir A and Lady Hunter
[General Sir Archibald Hunter 1856 – 1936 and his wife Lady Mary Hunter 1866–1924] on Saturday night. I dare say if you care I could tell Lord Montgomerie [Alexander Seton Montgomerie 1880-1945, later 16th Earl of Eglinton and Winton] you are available to come. I must go as it is pretty well an order. I shall come up to London early Sunday morning & you could come down here for the day on Saturday. Possibly we might look at houses together on Saturday afternoon.

I will try & write Hamish
[Donald Hamish Cameron, son of Colonel Cameron and Lady Hermione] tonight. I am so looking forward to having my angel with me again.
