15th August, 1916

Dear Sir,

I am in receipt of your letter of the 7th instant, respecting your son, and I should indeed be glad to do anything I could for you in this connection. The matter, however, of sending your boy home is one for the Military Authorities in the United Kingdom, and thus it is entirely outside my power. I feel sure, however, that if he is ill that they will take every care of him, and will send him home if it be found that he is unable to continue his part in connection with the Regiment.

Yours truly

Colonial Secretary
