August 17, 1917 Letter from the War Office

Without explanation, the War Office sends Bill’s father a letter saying only that he is sick. The letter goes home to Teeswater and is then forwarded to Neepawa, Manitoba where John is visiting his daughter Floss Skilling Guinn. He receives it on September 7th, nearly a month after Bill has fallen sick.
