JL Turnbull Second Sister in Law Letter
24 Grange Rd.
Dear Mr. Christison,
There is not very much I can tell you about my brother-in-law.
After he left school he went out to Iquique (Chile) to join an older brother, & for [four??] years he was on the nitrate mines. Then in 1909 he sailed out to S. Africa & joined another brother, who was ostrich farming  & stayed with him for 2 years. Then he went to Johannesburg & got a position in the head office of the Knight Central group of mines.
In December 1913 he married & leaves a son born 1915. He volunteered for Service in German East Africa in 1916, & went up there in April, & died of malaria fever Oct. 31st.
If there is anything else you want to know, please ask me as it is no trouble, only I know  nothing about any of the actions in which he took part in German East Africa.
[Muriel M.???] Turnbull
