As I explained in a previous communication

the Frank North who is here is not the 

one you ask for. He is in the Duke of

Cornwall's Light Infantry and comes,

I believe, from England, not Dublin.

Beyond the fact that some officers here

met him at home, I am unable to find

out anything about him or what  happened

to him. I am extremely sorry. I presume

he is missing. I would suggest writing

direct to the adjutant of his battalion and

the Red Cross Society of Geneva who are

in a position to make very complete 

inquiries.

   I trust that it will not be very long

before we meet again. My love, Dear

Mother to you, Lil and Charlie

            Your Affectionate Son

                              Bob

P.S. Please ask Charlie to write.
