Donation from a Mother

The following gratifying letter was received on December 18:- The Oaks School, Harrow on the Hill:- “Dear Sir, The £7 I am sending herewith represents the proceed of a school Christmas party given to parents and friends of the pupils here, when we made a special appeal for the funds of your Society. The motive for this is supplied by yourselves. I can never be grateful enough for the help and kindness proffered to my son, a ‘Shipwrecked
Mariner’ as a result of being torpedoed last April.”
