My Dear Friends.-Just a line to thank you for the beautiful parcel you sent me, i am sure it is good of you to think of us way out here. I read the accounts of your efforts and it cheers us up to know the people at home are doing their bit to help us, and there are no people move patriotic than the Canadians. I am sure you would all be sorry to hear of Jack Sweet. I was with him the day before he Was killed and he was so cheerful and we had quite a good talk about Magrath and what we would do when we got back, he was a good soldier and I never once heard him complain. Wishing yon every success in your good work. Believe me, your sincerely, E. DALTON; Somewhere in France, December 6th. 1917. Bear Friends,-I was very pleased to receive your parcel which came In good shape a few days ago. Everything was very nice, especially Jthe cake and candy, and I am wearing the socks now and they are very nice and comfortable for the cold weather we are now having. When I go home I can thank each one personally and tell you things I can not write. Uncle 3am is coming in strong and Germany will realize it soon to her sorrow. Things are pretty lively over here and we are all kept busy all the time, bat we don't mind that as long as w� feel that we are getting the required support from home to keep us pressing on to victory. I am, Yours sincerely, N. S. FORSYTH, C. V. H. December 14th, 1917. Dear Friends,-I take this opportunity to thank you all for the much appreciated parcel which you sent me The contents were in splendid condition. I must say that the town of Magrath although small, has responded splendidly to the "call," not only is *It I who think that, but all the boys who know Magrath. I have just returned from down the line with German prisoners, so don't know what has happened of late. I have been very fortunate, not being wounded so far, I will close it is my turn on sentry. Again thanking you for the parcel. My three brothers are all well. I am, PTE. P. ROBERTSON' London, England, December 4, 1917. Dear Everybody of the Red Cross- Today I was surprised by the receipt of your fine parcel. Don't need to say it was thankfully received, that is an understood fact. It was sure some parcel. The corporal who brought it to me thought it contained gold bricks. And really it did because those shiny white lumps of sugar are worth their weight in gold. Its dangerous having them around as 1 am subject to violence from housewives, etc; Here we use bTown sugar, mol-asses, treakle, etc., to sweeten our drinks. At the restaurants an allowance of about half a lump per person, ao you see what a kindly position you have raised me to. "Thanks/' And to counteract the common army having "cold feet/' those fine socks, and the cowardly nose that runs away, the handkerchief. All in all the parcel was the same as a regular gold mine and is a very substantial expression of remembrance. As I have so often said, the Red Cross is the sole surviving remnant ot Christianity at present on the earth. While all the nations wealth and power are being expended for misery dealing and destruction, the Red Cross is alwayB on hand to cheer and save. No greater work has ever been done than the one you are doing and it should be a source of joy to you forever. I, along with every other soldier of the king, appreciate it and thank you from the bottom of nay heart. I am, Sincerely, PTE. AM. MERCER. ifig interests south of town. j which we are ever loyal subjects.
