To: Mrs. Marion G. Patrick, Yorkton, Assa.
Delivery: Canada Post, postmarked
Details: 1pp typewritten letter on Hotel Leland, Winnipeg letterhead. Envelope is printed with “Hotel Leland, Winnipeg, proprietor W.D. Douglas.” Address is typed.
Notes: T.A. Patrick writes to his wife, Marion, that he has been busy "loafing" around Winnipeg since his arrival there. He mentions that he had lunch with Sanford Evans, editor of the Telegram, who had wrote "one of the articles on Territorial Autonomy in the last number of the Canadian Magazine." He states that he had to refuse to say anything for publication but that the discussion resulted in Evans agreeing to send a Telegram correspondent to Regina to write up the debates.
Patrick states that "the Nord-Westen (German) is a convert to my views and kindly consented to give reports of my work at Regina at full length without asking anything for doing it. This is unusual in a German newspaper." He then reports that he attended a the Winnipeg medical society "to hear and see a lecture on Neilsen's stomach and liver."
Patrick also had diner with H. A. Robson, late deputy attorney general of the North West Territories, and they chatted about Regina and the North West Government, which Robson thought "worthy of condemnation." Patrick reports that Robson assured him "that the opinions expressed to the Devils Lake school district in respect of the assessment of Doukhobortsi were wrong and that the opinion I expressed to them was right."
He finish his letter stating, "I expect a fighting session and will probably have given and received hard blows before I see you again."
