Series 01: Anne Donnell circular letters, 25 May 1915 - 8 July 1918 - Page 52
taking baby to Italy where the Colonel's sister is going to take charge of her & Mrs Fiaschi proposes coming back & rejoining the unit at Lemnos to continue her nursing. I will wait & see her safely off from here then go on to Lemnos. Sometimes I wonder if any hitch will crop up to prevent me going, but I do trust not. All being well we leave the Hospital to-morrow week, stay a few days at the Majestic Hotel waiting for the Italian boat which goes on the 7th of October.
To-day am dreadfully home sick for letters. Tomorrow afternoon Sister Burns & I are looking forward to a happy time at Abonkir Bay.
I am so glad that you have had such a good winter. All must be rejoicing at the promising harvest I can picture the spring time out there & with everything so beautiful around you it is difficult to realise all the suffering that this terrible war involves over here & I feel heart sick when I think of Australia being drained of all its best men.
Good bye once again- I'll just say how very glad I am that I came & when our work is done how very very glad I will be to get back again- there's no place like home. Hoping all is well c you. With the best of best wishes
My future address is- Sister Donnell
