TitleLetter to Frank Cowlard from Viscount Mandeville, Colombo [Ceylon]
DescriptionIt's possible he may be able to return before the end of the shooting season. Will probably go to Park Lodge rather than the Castle, even if it was available, as it will need doing up and servants will be impossible to get. Had a nasty accident and was treated with "this new drug" penicillin which prevented him having to have his leg amputated. Awfully sorry to hear the news about Frank Wilson.
