#814153 Pte. Donald Ross
187th Batt
C.E.F.
1898 ~ 1918

"Now I am going to cry out a motherís sore heart for you for some little news of my sonís death..." Mrs. Hugh Ross, Grafton Ontario 23 Oct. 1918


Grafton, Oct 23 1918

Dear friend Cormers;

My Friend Cormers is the way my Dear son Donald Ross spoke of you when he wrote me the last letter he will ever write on August 30th. I do not want to read the letter just now for if I do I shall not be able to finish this letter to you. Now I am going to cry out a motherís sore heart for you for some little news of my sonís death. I have nothing but a cable and a letter from a chaplain who mistakenly put another boyís name and number in the letter he wrote about my sonís death so you see it had very little interest for me.

Please have his little personal effects sent to me they are as nothing to anyone else but how precious they are to me his Mother, anything that had been touched his dear hands...Ah Cormers may you never have that longing to see anyone that I have to see my son. I am so lonely for him and have been waiting so long and now, Oh now I must wait in vain and I loved him so please do all you can in this for me and I shall give you a motherís blessing....Now I will close and I do hope that this awful long selfish letter will not bore you too much and that you will try to send some little news.

Mrs Hugh Ross
