Dear Doctor

An anniverasary celebration was held here for the French Army. I presented the Foyer du Soldat with the portrait of President Wilson. This was accepted with great enthusiasm and continuous cheers from the soldiers. The Public Press gave it great importance, and I here enclose clippings from newspapers here.

Thre great battle is still rolling, but at present looks better for the allies. We received a convoy with two hundred and fifty patients from the front last night. Gassed, wounded and shocked. The Hospital train comes down about every second day.

All is going well in the Medical Dept. except cdiscontent caused by the present methods of the SG’s office. All attention now is centered on the great battle. We have ten of our hospital staff at the front dressing station now. This is undoubtedly the greatest battle of the worlds greatest war. Sorry you are not here to see it, but hope, isf the struggle continues, you may come later.

Yours very truly,

Angus McLean
