An article written by local columnist Dorothy Eedy titled "More recollections from former publisher". In this article, Eedy writes about her father-in-law Lorne Eedy Sr. and his series of articles called "Dear Mr. Editor" which acted as memoirs of his life. He wrote these memoirs in 1946.

In this edition Eedy provides excerpts from Lorne Eedy's writings on his trip to the United Kingdom and how he met his wife Grace. Lorne was offered a job from an acquaintance in Toronto to "sell a boiler plate service to country publishers in return for advertising space".
