Edward Campbell to May 6 Aug 1917 B.E.F.
Dear Miss Muggridge,
Thank you for your letter. I got such a nice strong letter from Mrs Taylor about her son. Her view of the loss was so brave and one that other people might do well to copy. How bravely she is taking it. I must sympathise with you most sincerely on the loss of such a friend.
However, there is quite a good chance of his being a wounded prisoner, and I think you would be perfectly right to rely on that for a time first, as news will take a long time to come through and the Germans admit 27 officer prisoners. Otherwise I have no news alas to give you about him. I should of course let you know immediately I heard anything.
