Capt. J. C. Ponsford.
I am anxious to know if you have learned of any new developments, concerning my case. I have been hopeful until now in view of nearly eleven years served, that Ottawa might see fit to do something for me. If there is anything you could tell me Sir, I would be very grateful to you, even if not encouraging at present, it cant be very long until they will believe I have tried every day of these years "to earn my way out." I know at all times you are ever ready Sir, to do anything you can to help us, and that I am not forgotten. But I have lived on one hope after another, never really knowing what you, or those in a position to know, thought. I would appreciate if only a word from you, Sir. I am not one to ask often, and anything, even disappointment is better than suspense. With thanks for this, and past favors.
