Scope and Content

Letter to Frederick Orpen Bower from AM Drummond in which she tells Bower that she has had a letter from James Montagu Frank Drummond asking how Bower is and stating that he wished he were back in Glasgow and working as normal. She states that he is determined to see out the war and that he is very wroth with some people in power for talking of a patched up peace. He believes that the only way to lasting peace is to beat the Germans in the field. She tells Bower that he is still intelligence officer and is enjoying the work. He is stationed somewhere beyond Jerusalem and describes the flowers as brilliant and beautiful. He has 3 weeks leave due to him but she has told him not to return home and risk both two journeys in which he might be torpedoed and being send to France. He has spent a weeks leave in Luxor instead and liked it very much. She tells Bower that it has been a year since he left and a long and dreary one of waiting for her. They are strictly rationed and she has spent some time working in a convalescent home but this has been moved so now she is thinking of working in munitions. She comments that she had not heard who got the post in South Africa and had told her husband that she would find out from Bower.
