[inserted] MRS I.M. KING

Riverview St
Milton Heights
Dear Mrs Wareing
I hope you will pardon the liberty I have taken in writing you these few lines.
I have learned from Dorris my sons [sic] wife of your great kindness to Robert my dear boy during his stay in the Mother Country for which I thank you with all my heart.
As his Mother it is very gratifying to know that our boys can go forward to fight the greatest enemy the World has ever known and it is to be hoped the sacrifices we are all making will not be in vain.
Since receiving the sad news of the boys not returning to their Base its only natural I feel the position very deeply and we can put our trust in God & pray for their safe return after we have crushed Hitler and his Gestapo and the people of the World will once again live in Peace & Harmony and the little children of today will never have to fulfil similar obligations
If you should happen to gain any further information concerning the boys I will deem it a great favor [sic] if you would let me know as I thought you being so close at hand you might receive news which we in the Dominions could not procure.
However trusting to hear good news in the near future and again expressing sincere thanks.
I remain
Your sincere friend
Mrs I.M. King
