Details: 4 pp; second piece of paper is blank; paper watermarked with crown, crest, and “Antique Parchment Note Paper;” & an envelope

Note: Patrick writes to his wife that he is sorry that the "Village adjourned its meeting for it can't hold another one legally as the town of Yorkton began to exist yesterday.” He then tells his wife that he is anxious to "see the Enterprise to see if the proclamation was published" and asks who the candidates are for the mayoralty and for Councillors.

Patrick states that "Billy Miller has no moral or legal claim on the Hudson and Co. and the policy was issued no delay of mine affected the matter in the least. Mr. Bull is merely playing a game which will reach on himself." He inquires if Jack [his brother] can discretely find out who will be appointed into the Public Administratorship of Yorkton as the last Administrator had passed away. Near the end of his letter he mentions that he wrote a letter to [J.A.] Magee for the next Enterprise [newspaper].
