Cameron of Lochiel to Lady Hermione Cameron, 17 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 17 September 1914. The following is a transcript of the parts of the letter which relate to the war:

Thank you so much for your darling letter. Just a line to say I am well but still very busy.
The 3rd Battalion is gradually mounting up at Inverness.

Did you see an advertisement in today's 'Times' calling for comforts for the 79th. You should get in touch with this agency so as to collate it with the rest. I am simply longing to see your letter in the papers. Did mine ever appear that I wrote this week to the Herald & Scotsman & does it read all right.

The Rev. Crawford wants to come as Chaplain!!
