Dear Friends,—

Your gift of tobacco addressed to Corpl. Eustace was handed to the corporals in his platoon, as we were his immediate friends up to the time of his death. You have no doubt by this time had all details of this sad occurrence, and we wish to add that he was a good soldier and a true friend at all times, which is the highest praise one soldier can give another.
