KING GEORGE and QUEEN MARY 1915 MAPLE LEAF CLUB 11, CHARLES STREET, BERKELEY SQUARE, W. LONDON,_June 11th 1916

Dear Stan: How are you keeping anyway. I haven't heard from you for quite a while now and I believe I answered your letter. I received [your - crossed out] a letter from both Fan and Aut. Last week. It is very nice for Frank to buy a car isn't it?

I am feeling fine now and I am at Bromley, Can. convalescent hospital. It is just about fifteen miles from the centre of London and just a suburb. I left the King George. Hospital yesterday morning. I do not like this hospital as well as it is not near as clean but I can go out all day. I do not expect that I will be there long.

I came down from Bromley this morning on a busy and I am now at the Maple Leaf Club.

KING GEORGE and QUEEN MARY 1915 MAPLE LEAF CLUB 11, CHARLES STREET, BERKELEY SQUARE, W. LONDON,_ 191

I had quite a look at London the last couple of days. Thursday I went to Van Dyke's Galleries to a concert and tea. We were asked by some lady who is always asking some patients in the hospital to places like that. It certainly was very nice. Friday afternoon a man called in a large car and took four of us out for a motor ride all around London. I had a good look at The Parliament buildings, Buckingham Palace, St. Paul's, Westminster Abbey. all the parks and the zoo. and a lot of other places.

The war news these last couple of days is certainly bright. The Germans are getting whipped on every side. It certainly was to bad about Kitchener and the other officers and sailors. The people around here did not know what to think. Well Stan I will close for this time. Best Love to Louise, babes and Mrs. Spada and Mr Cousin. Tell Aut and Fan I will write them soon. Not much use of me writing two letters to Toronto the same time. Best Love to All, Brother Ted.
