Submitted and transcribed by Carol Billingham.

Carol Billingham says about these letters:
           "Most of the family tree that I have as well as these letters originally came, I believe, from a D. G. Dick who was a Notary Public in and for the Province of British Columbia. His work is dated the 30th of March, 1917. Credit must be given to him."
