I am afraid this does not bring you very good news. Your son, Lance Corporal JB Dwyer, is in this hospital severely wounded in the back and head and is dangerously ill. His condition at the present time is critical, and it is not possible to say what the progress may be. Everything will be done for him that is possible, and he will have good care, but he is extremely ill, and the doctors think very seriously of him. Try not to worry too much, and hope for the best.

[John recovered from his wounds; he returned to Orange after the war, married and fathered two children]
