Hon J.R. Bennett
Colonial Secretary
St. Johnís-

Hon Sir-

I am writing you re my son Cyril G. F Stone, Reg No. 3410, who is at present home on leave, which makes me very anxious, as it makes me think perhaps he will be sent across sooner than I expected, so therefore I am writing to ask you if you will please use your influence that he may be kept in St. Johnís  until the coming summer, as he has had no training and is only sixteen years of age- I am enclosing my sonís birthday certificate, trusting you will grant my request thanking you in anticipation.

I am Hon Sir,
Yours respectfully

B.M. Stone
