Hello Mr Townshend
Confidentily, at the present I do not know if I am to be granted leave back to Canada or not. But I'd like to thank you sincerely for all that[obviously have done for me. If it is to be that I can not go back and should it be I have to stay over here then when that time comes I would like you to tell mother to leave whatever she has to Kay, my wife, and the children.
