No letter for the 13th of March 1917, so a little background information.
Above is a photo of 68 High Street London Ontario, where Mabel lived for some time while Dick was overseas. The house still exists today and is occupied by Gibson Surveyors. In chatting with them, I learned that the house was originally a boarding house. The upstairs bedroom doors still each contain a lock cylinder which would allow the occupant to secure his door. The current occupant says he believes the house is 125 to 150 years old and was originally built by the owners of a large appliance manufacturer in London for family along with a house at the top of the hill on High Street.
