In his letter of 28 October 1915, Burnett informs Bunbury he is sending a set of his books to Bunbury as promised. Burnett notes he has taken the liberty to boldly write on each of the books, The Royal Engineers-Bermuda "because I know from experience how people borrow books & forget to return them." He adds he has also sent a number of children's books to the children of the regiment. Burnett's letter of 9 November confirms the box of books was sent. "Whether it reaches you or not lies in the hands of Fate."
The Royal Engineers of Bermuda maintained a long tradition of theatrical entertainment from the second half of the nineteenth century. Perhaps plans for a production based on Burnett's works were in the making when Burnett sent his books at Colonel Bunbury's request.
