Letter from National War Work Council of Young Men's Christian Associations of the United States.

Front of letter, "With the colors", picture of American glad and an upside down red triangle. Letter addressed to Mr. WH Hutchison of South Oshawa, Canada. Reads: "Dear Sir, My folks send me the letter you wrote my father. I am glad you rec'd. "Beauty" all O.N. but am sorry she was delayed so long. Hope the trip didn't hurt her any and don't suppose it did as she is a very healthy bitch. I've run across a few dogs since I've been in this camp. Seen an Eng Bull one pretty good heavy Boston and several Airedales. Some good ones. I saw and called as fine a young Airedale bitch to me one evening as one often sees. She had brass studded color and blue ribbon on her neck but no name on plate. So I couldn't find out who she belonged to but she was a real one. I was about 2 weeks and when I got able to get about some I noticed an Airedale bitch at a fine station close by and went over (of course) and talked about to the owner (a fireman) and he told me about a fellow in a different ward of the Hospital having a lot of Airedales and I went to see him and who do you think it was. It was Sergeant Fowler who... you suppose as I have myself read so much about in "Kennel Review". He always sent in pictures and write ups at Airedales and by game hunts in the West and South West, etc. Wrote from Mexican border quite a bit. Well he has been in the service 12 years he says, and is now 30 years old. He's a little wary fellow and not afraid of the devil from my opinion. He has 2 wild bear hides in his room and a big 43 six shooter holster. He is different than you and I he breeds for hunting [underlined] exclusively and don't care for show as we do but he breeds from the best winning streams. His dogs and pups are sure game all right and he has one Monarch bitch can do most anything but tells. He owns and has here that dog byle used to have signed by Ch. His Highness. I suppose you have often read of him as he is pretty widely known. Name El Collado Royalist. Had one ear torn off in fight. He says he always takes his dogs wherever he goes that is part of them a pretty good bunch although he says he also has a big kennel (Jack he calls it) somewhere in the southwest, in Texas. ...on around with some friend. How he gets by taking those dogs along in the Army I don't see but some of these old "Regulars" that are on the... get by with a lot that some fellows aren't. Well here is hoping the war's soon over so my brother and I can get back to the game again. My address may change at any time now as I signed a transfer this week and don't know what I will be transferred to get either but suppose I will get out of the infantry and hope so as they sure put you through and I don't like Infantry much. You can write me at present address and I will likely get it anyways if I do change or if you don't, write soon I can drop you a card with my new address and you then write me. Sincerely, Raymond A."

Correspondence from "Morgan and Co."

Letter template reads: "Megan and Co., Laboratories on New York". Reads "Dear friend; we take this opportunity to bring to your attention "Dejein" Canine Destemper Compound, a remedy unequalled for dog distemper. When used at the onset of this disease, "Dejein" is or specific that cuts and shortens the attack... Distemper is very contagious and is due to a gene negative germ extremely small in size. When the disease is a generalized blood poisoning... Dejein directly attacks the germs anywhere in the system by preventing their multiplication, destroying germs themselves, by neutralizing their poisons, thus bringing about recovery". Continues to talk more about "Dejein" remedy, mentions it is certifiably backed. Explains the "care of Distempered Dog: Allow an abundance of fresh air and sunlight; house in a temperature between 60-70 degrees; avoid forced feeding; give frequently a small quantity of heated milk and lime water..." According to letter, dogs "take Dejein readily, it settles the stomach and stops vomiting".

Greetings Announcement

Title reads: "To All Geni, King and Major Kleagles, Kleagles, Imperial Representatives, and Citizens of the Invisible Empire". Reads as "Greeting": (I) "In Union there is strength. Anything to the contrary scatters abroad. A real united Klankraft in Canada is now being born. The real Klan is coming into being. The recent events are not to be regretted. There is a divine Providence back of an in it all. In the stress the real worth or lack of it has revealed itself. Those who compose the Klan are true, real, sincere and they came into the Klan because they knew that we must find an adequate remedy at once or we are doomed as Protestants in the world. We now know where we are. Those who sought to rise to a place of leadership, or shall we say "Dictatorship", over the abused reputations of others have been revealed and the Klan has been saved from them forever. no real Klansman will follow them. The real Klan is now taking definite shape in Canada"; (II) Mentions the amalgamation of the 3 main Klan groups in Canada, "Now that our house has been purged by Providence of all dead timber and that the old ship has had all the barnacles scraped off we are ready to set to sea"; (III) Urging Klansmen to abstain "from all the bitterness and from all perfidy. Those who are responsible for the recent disturbances have tried to build the cause upon hate, prejudice, slander, narrowness and false report. They alone are the sufferers. The real Klan is going on just the same. Thus they have put themselves outside our realm and outside the fold of Klankraft"; (IV) Mentions new features to be adopted, such as appointing a new "Imperial Representative" to go as a "Kourier to the Klans, a teacher or messenger whose duty it shall be to teach Klankraft and to help in all the details of the forward movement and work"; (V) Includes the following statement from Dr. Fowler: "Faithful Klansmen and Klanswomen [...] I was to turn over the higher Orders. That promise was also given in good faith. But no sooner than my back was turned than certain parties who had been at work ever since last June to undermine me, began a campaign of vile slander against me seemingly hoping to elevate themselves by destroying me. Well, I am not the kind that sits down under such perfidy. I lost all confidence and of course refused to deliver the other Orders. It was a gracious Providence that saved them from such unworthy hands. There was a fiasco meeting held in January. In that I have absolutely no confidence. The same ugly spirit prevails. We cannot build the Klan about such. Better a thousand times that we disband now than that we try to build that way. We have no room for those who thinks only of self. The key to our holy cause is "NON SILBA SED ANTHAR". To these principles I have been true. I have kept the faith, slanderous, false, purposefully wicked statements to the contrary notwithstanding. My record is before the members. They know I defy the world to show to the contrary. For this reason I am remaining, for the present, with the continuing, the original Klan until it can go forward without me. I have no ambitions, save the building of the real Klan in Canada. I shall give every ounce of my strength to the worthy men and women who have now been chosen to do the work in Canada. I have made the Orders available for them. As soon as the Imperial Officers are ready to take over the work, I must go on to another wider field in the great Klan struggle, for as you know the Klan movement is international. I bid you trust the leaders now before you. You are the only original, official body now functioning in Canada. All others must soon pass out of existence. I am I.T.S.U.B. C Lewis Fowler".; (VI) "Let all Klans declare at once just what they are going to do. If you want all of Klankraft, then come on with us, declare your loyalty to the Headquarters that has the message and the Orders and the program". Bottom signed "The Ku Klux Klan of Kanada, Imperial Headquarters".

Official Communication

Top of letter is a picture of a hooded person in white robes on top of a hooded horse holding a torch, with the words "Yesterday Today and Forever". Begins with "Read at your Next Meeting", then follows another general greeting. Reads: "I find that too many men are being admitted into our Order without their Klectoken or Donation being paid and in many cases these men do not attend meetings or take any further interest in Klankraft. This method is roving a detriment to Klankraft and must be discontinued at once. Effective at once King Kleagles, Kleagles, and Exalted Cyclops are instructed to see that the Obligation or Secret work is not suffered upon any applicant until the Klectoken or Donation has been paid in full and dues for the first quarter or remaining period of such quarter has been paid. You will t once notify all members that when they bring eligible with them to our meeting that they must inform such eligible that the donation is ten dollars and the dues $1.50 per quarter or 50 cents per month [...] and in case this is not done the member bringing them to the meeting will be held personally responsible for such donation and dues". Goes on to insist they inform and enforce the above. Signed Richard L. Cowen, Imperial Wizard, by Dr. J.H. Hawkins, Imperial Klaliff and Chief of Staff.
