To Mr. Beaumont Boggs

Dear Sir.

I am taking the liberty of writing to you and asking if you could give me any assistance to secure a position here so as to enable me to support my wife and self.

I joined up with the 88th and went across to France with the 1st Contingent, got wounded in the left shoulder at Ypres which has left me with a paralyzed arm so that I am unable to follow my trade as a carpenter and joiner.

For any help you could give me I should be much obliged

I remain Yrs Truly
E. Nicks
