Letter to "Hanean"

Folded letter. Reads: "My Dear Hanean… hoping you are all well as we are… has been very cold and… very dull here at present. The shops are only working three and four days a week. There is a lack of cutting… I started about three weeks ago to work for my old boss again... I do not know how long it will last as he has not got many on hand. He is paying me the same as he was paying me. Four dollars a day. The other men is only receiving three dollars. I don't let on to the other men what I get. There are a number looking for work everyday. We got some maple syrup... and as soon as we can get ale send if we can. You will have to send the can back again, now and next spring as I will have to refill it. The syrup had a gallons so that is from dollars... I have forgotten the price of them. I know it was pour "something", We will say four and a quarter. Then you told me you would of liked to get him more apple trees and a plow... I told you to get them and I will pay for them. Blanche has just received your letter. Also a card from myself. She was saying she would like more gallons... I do not think we can get it... even writing this couple of days where is more coming in. So I do not think we will be able to get it... saving as you are waiting to get the trees in the tall and I will pay for them as I have promised two apples and one pear tree... sending you back his dollars and a held and I will pay fifty cents more to it and make it even three dollars. The syrup and the extra fifty cents will pen for the brushes. I suppose you have got all your liquor in this time... was saying in the first letter that she hoped it would all be gone before... think there is worse things than a bit of liquor. I just got in a letter around hundred dollars worth, expect to get in two more shipments this week. Won't forget and let it run too long for then you will not be able to get it. You will see other people drinking the food stuff... You know there is never anything wanted in this house from spending a little money a liquor and she knows. She has never wanted for anything from the little money you spent on liquor and has never made me poor. You know there is more... Those revolvers... liquor just look at as the men who went in... and held up... all those men with revolvers... I hold up those men in Niagara without revolvers and look how... and from these had working men and just all the men who were held up and right beside you in Toronto this Winter. Is that not worse than a little liquor. Then is the things that a poor man who is not... liquor are he cannot get it, it is too expensive and he cannot... and get it like the man who sends for it now is not because his family wants for anything to eat. So don't forget... before it is too late. If you have not got the money I want... He was here one day... Told him they would do whatever I do. He came up to place where I was working and wanted to know what I was going to do. And I told him I was going to work for liquor. He said how and I told him my father raised six boys and none of them are drunkards. I told him there was lots worse than a bit of liquor, he said he knows it. I told there I always keep a... in the house... Like most I even take in a couple of spoonfuls. I always keep it for sickness here must be going to be a lot of sickness ahead to drink up all the liquor I have now. So then he went away and did not say anything more to me. So didn't wait too long and have to take value when you see older people taking a drink. I came to the conclusion none of us are going to." End of letter, signed "Archer".

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."
