Cameron of Lochiel to Lady Hermione Cameron, 15 September 1914 (1 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 15 September 1914 (although it was sent in the same envelope as the letter posted on 11 September). The following is a transcript of the parts of the letter which relate to the war:

I am afraid you will think I have forgotten you all together. But I have not my own Treasure. You are always in my thoughts. But I am occupied morning noon & night. Orders & Counter Orders.

Sir Archie Hunter [General Sir Archibald Hunter 1856-1936] is such a charming man. Does anything possible in his power to help me.

If you like to write to the National Bank of Egypt a letter for my signature for £100 I will sign it. But I have no time to do it myself.

I have a stenographer & typist now to write my letters. But that is too private!

Young MacIntyre. We did not think much of him. He looks very grubby!!
Well I must stop as I must go and dress for dinner...

PS: sent a Mrs Cameron Banks to you. She came bothering me about nurses & Red Cross & I am not quite sure of her. She will be out to Buchanan though. So look out. She may be genuine enough. But consult your mother before committing yourself.
