Robert Allison to Milborough Mackay, Undated [March 1920]
Dear Sister Milborough
I have tried to persuade Dolly to go home early in July but she seems to think she would rather wait till I’m at liberty to go — the end of October. It is a long trying journey to make alone, and it is only in the hope of seeing you I would suggest it. Atlantic travel is so crowded, & I fear not so comfortable as in the old days. Would it not be possible for you to postpone your departure till later in the year? It seems a pity to miss one another, and Dolly is so anxious to see you. Any how we are going to get our passports ready in case an opportunity offers to get away.
I have read your book with interest, and can understand your attitude. It is a difficult question and one not easily settled.
Your admiring brother-in-law
