Letter from J M Barrie to Mrs Lewis

I found your letter on my return. I managed to get Peter away with me for 48 hours which was beyond my hopes. I saw a rather remarkable sight from the Messines ridge. A German aeroplane darted out of a cloud and round the gamut of our six balloons, burning for them to ribbons. The site however was the four balloonists descending safely in their parachutes. The only time of any danger was in seeking for George's grave, which I found.
