From Elijah Price, R.N.R
To his wife, at Loreburn.
“I spent a very fine Christmas Day, had a good dinner, and took a drive for about thirty miles, so you see the people are good to me wherever I go. I was very lucky that day, because I was the only one that went from our ship. Please remember me to all my friends and relatives and tell them not to forget to write me.”
