OTTAWA, November 21, 1944.
Mrs. A.H.J. Gould,
133 Bowie Ave.,
The Directors of the Royal Canadian Air Force Benevolent Fund have learned with deep regret that your son is reported missing and I am asked to express their concern and hope that encouraging news will be received shortly.
It has been decided that however unlikely the need of assistance from this Fund may appear to be, I should at least ask you if anything can be done, financially or otherwise.
If there is anything that can be done to help, please let me know. Any questions you may have with respect to the receipt of dependents' allowance or assigned pay should be directed to the Dependents' Allowance Board, Ottawa. If this savours of intrusion, I hope you will forgive in the light of the above explanation.
W D Watt
