Letter to Rev. R.M. Laporte Payne April 15



Dear Sir,                                                                                                          April 15


As I am of opinion that you will interest yourself on my behalf, I am asking if you could kindly send a Lady worker in the district to pay a visit to my wife or call yourself, as I have just received a letter from home, which does not leave one feeling very comfortable, and I am sure it is a letter one does not wish to receive in times, such as are at the present. I have a little boy who had rickets but my wife does not tell me anything as regards how he is going on, and I am very anxious to know, so if you could write a letter to me on behalf of my wife, I shall esteem it a great favour as my time out here is none too pleasant & my wife fails to give me any news that would be of interest to me.  There is no doubt that this will cause her to be offended but I feel I am compelled to do it owing to the uneasy state of my mind.  I received your card at the beginning of the year and I think I acknowledged it.  I am enclosing her letter for you to see, and when she gets to know what I have done no doubt I shall receive fewer letters still.  My present address is 34th M.A.C. Salonica Forces No. 203809 late 91st A.A.  I will now close thanking you in anticipation, Believe me to be

Yours very truly


Pte F. Bowman
