Custodial history

Scope and content

Place: Regina [N.W.T.]

From: T.A. Patrick

To: Mrs. T.A. Patrick, Yorkton, N.W.T.

Delivery: Canada Post, postmarked

Details: 3 pp on paper watermarked with crown, crest, and “Antique Parchment Note Paper;” & an envelope

Notes: T.A. writes one of his frequent letters to his wife that he has work "to do today as chairman of the "Cooked Accounts" Committee reporting the refusal of Mr. Bennett to attend the Committee when requested to attend and give evidence" and Patrick writes of moving for an order to compel Mr. Bennett's attendance.

He then mentions letters from his mother and sister, Maud, and meeting with the new boiler inspector. He states that "the estimates were brought down yesterday Yorkton District fares fairly well - about $3500 altogether." He continues that "this will do quite a little to improve our roads and bridges." Additionally, he states that he has sent 14 letters to the district "advising people as to the grants for particular works."

Patrick finishes his letter writing "I think my letter to Mr. Magee [from the last letter] settled a good deal of his chatter. I wonder if Mrs. Magee will come to see you [Patrick's wife] again."
