Custodial history

Scope and content

Place: Regina [N.W.T.]

From: Alf [T.A. Patrick]

To: Mrs. Marion G. Patrick, Byron, Middlesex Co., Ont[ario]

Delivery: Canada Post, postmarked

Details: 1 pp on lined North West Territories letterhead and envelope.

Notes: T.A. Patrick writes a letter to his wife, Marion, while she is away in Ontario. He writes that it is "more like January than November. The walk up to the buildings was very cold and uncomfortable and this Assembly Chamber is almost too cold to sit in. This is our first real cold snap, but November is half gone, and this is not in the banana belt." He tells Marion of his and Jack's [his brother's] visit to their friends the Hunters where Mrs. Rogers had stopped by to visit her sister. He explains that "Mr. Hunter has been in the Land Titles Office for some years but has resigned to open a law office in Regina. As Secretary of the Hospital he gets $250 per year and the same as Secretary of the Agricultural Society so he should be able to make enough to keep the pot boiling."
