16 General Hospital
April 10th 17
Dear Mrs Polson
I am indeed sorry to tell you that your son Pte Polson of S. Can M.G. Co(?) has been admitted to this hospital wounded His wounds are serious & we hope he will make satisfactory progress. He came here two days ago & I am pleased to tell you he has improved greatly.
I will write again in a few days & then perhaps can give you some idea when he will be able to travel to England.
At present he cannot write himself as his right arm was amputated before reaching here.
I don't want you to worry. I have every hope he will recover.
Promising to write again & with my sincerest sympathy. He sends his love & he is such a (?) patient.
(?) best wishes
