The Munro Letters 1914 - 1917 : Letters Home from the Front - World War I
Date of Letter:
Melville writes to his mother from Seaford, where is awaiting to return home to Oakville, Ontario, Canada. He talks about possibly coming home in a few weeks, and also talks a bit about the weather conditions.
Nov. 26th, 1918.

Dear Mother,
The last letters I got from home were one from you dated Oct. 20th and one from Bill dated Oct. 12th. I haven't got any of the boxes you were telling me about but I suppose they are all on the way. I don't know when we are going to get back to Canada but I think I stand a pretty good chance of getting back soon. The more I think about getting home the more I seem to like the idea. It sure will be good to see old Oakville again. I expect to get another leave at least before going home

(PAGE 2)
and I think I will go to see Mrs. McIntyre again. She sure did make me well when I was up there before. I have not seen Brock nor Brem nor Ban Taylor yet but one never knows what will happen, does one? How is Carlo's nose getting along. I suppose Bill says that Pug took a bite out of it.
The weather here has been real good for the last couple of weeks but to-day it is wet and I suppose it will continue to be wet for the next three months.
There is no more news so I will stop.

Love to all,
