I started an episle last night to you but did not finish it. We have holiday to-morrow. "Thanksgiving day"
Will McD's wedding came off this eve at 4 o'clock. Every-thing passed off all "O K" They all went out to Wills
& are having a big dance there to-night. Will Milne took Sadie. He had the ugliest old horse & buggy you ever saw.
When they went to get in the buggy May Wills & that set of girls were standing there & they all laughed & grinned old Will.
(Page 2) I would not have been in his place for a dollar.
Uncle Johnie is building a brick ware house opposite Wallace's store. Reid & others are putting up a furniture factory down
near the depot. Bob Brittain has built a flour mill below the depot just above that new ???plainer???.
Had a letter from Ern to day, nothing in it. Every thing is quiet over the election.
At Hunt is still here, Will Milne is going to leave Friday I think, & so is Denny. Denny is going to Phil to study
architecture. We have started up our Dramatic Club again. The older ones are going to have "Toodles" over again.
Mrs. McEleath is dead. Write soon yours as ever W H P
