    "Pianola Hall"
    252 Collins Street
    Melbourne
    Dear Staines
    I was very sorry to learn from your wire that Uncle George had died and I trust that he had a comfortable end, though from the fact that he died at the Hospital I fear that he might have been there as the result of an accident. I suppose he was a fair age, but it is always bitterly hard to part with a parent, more especially a good one as Uncle George always was.
    I have lost the address of the McGregors in Sydney but have written to Will McGregor who was formerly in Western Australia, but is now postal inspector at Junee NSW, and he will advise the others.
    I have lost track of your bunch for a long time but understand all the Woods boys are up in your district and would like to make a trip to Kingaroy some time if I could spare the time.
    I come to Brisbane two or three times a year, but only for a few days at a time. I will be there for four or five days in the middle of next month (March), but that is not a good time of the year for Queensland.
    We are having a hot spell in Melbourne just now and this is the fourth day at 100 in the shade. It is a dry heat so not so trying as Sydney.
    My family are all well including my wife. I suppose you know I have three children, the eldest a boy (Geoff) 12 1/2, the second a girl (Phyllis) nearly 11, and the third a boy (Keneth) nearly two. I suppose you can beat that hollow.
    Trusting you are all A1. I am with kindest regards
    Yours R REID.

    Melbourne 28 Feb 1917
    Dear Ethel
    Just back from Adelaide and received your telegram about poor Rob. It was a great shock to learn that he had gone. I hoped our boys had only gone to Egypt and the Suez Canal where the fighting is not so deadly. It is dreadful to think we will never see them again, lots of those fine fellows that went away so bravely. Poor Rob has paid the highest possible price for his patriotism and worse luck the fellows that stayed behind do not appreciate it.
    I went out to the camp in Brisbane when I was there last March but it was the 17th of March, St Patrick's Day and the camp was almost deserted and I could not find the boys, and did not get another chance to go out there.
    Have you heard lately of the others? Are they all right?
    I was in London last October and it was very depressing. Everyone you met was in mourning for some and dear relative, and you get very close to the war there.
    I will be in Brisbane about the middle of March, but am sorry to say that I can not spare the time to go out to see you at Kingaroy, but I hope to make the trip some day.
    Kindest regards from your affectionate cousin
    BOB

    Dartford, Kent
    Dear Ethel
    I hardly know how to write to you today, but feel that I must write you a short note at least. Dear Ethel you will have heard all about our dear Rob's death long ere this. I did not know for a month after he had passed away and then only by chance saw his name in the casualty list. I wrote to the OC of the hospital in France and this morning has a letter from the Chaplain in which he said that Rob was brought in from the line unconscious on the 4th of Feb and passed away the same day. They were placing a Cross and wreath on the grave. Oh dear Sister it is hard to lose him but it is God's will and he is at rest.
    I am waiting now for a boat to go home but don't know how long I will have to wait but hope before many weeks to be with you all again. I am not betting my mail these days and the last letters from you and Bessie were written on the 9th Nov. I had one from Jack written on the 29th November. Well dear Ethel forgive this short note but I trust all are well and hope to be with you all again before long.
    Love to all from your Loving Brother Don.
