Dear Mr Madgett
I feel I must write to convey to you and your wife my sympathy in your anxiety over your son, & I do trust that you will soon have good news.
You will not know me, but some years ago you were very kind to my husband, who I often heard speak of young ‘Hedley’. I do not know whether you know that my Husband passed away last year, but I am certain had he lived he would have written you himself.
My eldest son has just returned from abroad & my ‘middle’ son has recently been discharged unfit after 2 ½ years service. I am thankful
[page break]
my other little lad is only 8.
Trusting you will soon hear from your dear one,
Believe me,
Yours truly

Elsie Richardson
