Dear Mrs Madgett,
I didn't write to you before, because I though letters [deleted] like [/deleted] like these would be very harrowing to you, but as I see in the local paper you have acknowledged others, may I just tell you that you have been continually in my thought, with sincerest sympathy ever since we first heard that Hedly [sic] was missing
Am sure that all your [missing letters]iends hope with you that good news is still to come. Keep a stout heart, brave little mother, & remember only that your boy is one of Englands heroes
With love from
Isabel. Q. Pead.
