From Patunlay's Daily.
The following clippings which we
are indebted to John McLean, of the
firm of Avard & McLean, for it is
from the over-seas Edition of the
London Daily Mail:
England As The American "Blighty."
It is good news to learn that, the
wounded Americans are coming to
England. It is proof positive that
they feel "at home" with us. An
American mothers boy may be dead
or badly wounded weeks before the
news reaches her. She has more sus
pense because of the great distance
she is away perhaps 6,000 miles
and if the son goes home at all he
goes injured, may be maimed for
life. But it will be a great consola
tion to American mothers to know
that while their sons are on this side
the Atlantic England will be, as it
were, a second home to them.
This should be a consolation to
those who have friends in France,
who are in the service, and should
there be such a thing as they may
be wounded it is known that they
will have the care which can be giv
en in the iand where the light Is for
the life of civilization.

from the name source:
