...people in the Outer Islands, as I have lost now most of my S. R. men who have gone to the Front.

The King comes tomorrow & we are selected to find the guard on Monday. If he asks us to dine, what do I say? ...Or do I go alone? You might let me know in case. You are sure to be expected. Let me know what to do as I don't know how could explain your inability etc.

Kitchener comes on Saturday...
