Go Home, Ont.

Aug. 21 '51.

Dear Mrs. Deveney,

Your letter with its' en-

closure was forwarded to me

here at our summer home

(My husband is a teacher. So

we have two months!). It

was ever so good of you to

see that I got a picture of

Harley Hall, and has saved

me having to make a trip

to get it - so clear too.

I left map-making behind

when we came here, as I have

had the grandchildren, and

to fill up 9 hungry people

three times a day (at least)

in a place where the nearest

store is Midland, via boat,

requires some planning! There

are no roads here at all.

We go everywhere by boat,

no electricity, (you should

see me wield an axe) - also

no dust as it's so rocky +

without the roads + cars it's

a wonderful place to spend

the summer with a family

as they learn to row, swim,

chop wood, bake bread, do

carpenter work, and work and

play together.

Thank you for your

help, Mrs. Deveney. I hope

the 25c will pay for print

but your kindness I cannot

repay.

Yours Sincerely,

Jeanine Kinton
