The Munro Letters 1914 - 1917 : Letters Home from the Front - World War I
Date of Letter:
Ethel writes to her older brother. She is annoyed by all the family members teasing her as she writes the letter, and tells Gordon that she's also recently written Melville. She hopes to hear from them soon.
Dear Gordon-

I just finished writing Melville so I thought I had better write to you. To-day is Children's Day in Sunday School but it is over with now anyway.
Ma is at Camp Borden with Mrs. Chisholm and they will be back to-morrow. I wish she would stay a little longer.
Douglas Stuart is here and he is making me make all these blots

(Page 2)
so now he's spoiled my letter.
Ed says to tell you that Maggie XXXX didn't put butter in the pan before she put the potatoes. She's some cook anyway.
There have been four boys that came out from Toronto yesterday one was a soldier. They came in here and wanted to see Ed but he wasn't in, and as they were going out the boy took a jump and jimmied up on the soldiers' shoulders.
I haven't had a letter from you for a long time. Well I haven't very much news to tell you. I guess Faith day is next Thursday. I mustn't forget that.

Well I guess that's all for now.

Your loving sister
Ethel Taylor Munro

(now Daddy has my hat on, Goodbye goodbye goodbye)
