Letter to William Clarke from Florence Clarke

This item is a letter sent to William Clarke, a teenage English boy who had been living in Paris, Ontario for two years, from his elder sister Florence Clarke, who is living in Sheffield, England. Her letter mentions her gratefulness that William has not forgotten her. She thanks William and his chums for wishing she could visit and says she might come to Canada if the weather permits. She updates him on her work, saying she is making 30 pounds per year, and updates from the family, saying that Elizabeth and Vera often both speak fondly of him. She also mentions two recent “dreadful” events in Sheffield: a railway accident in which many passengers were burned to death, and the murder of a woman in a local park where they used to go boating. Florence lastly asks of William if he has a wrist watch as she wishes to send him one for Christmas. Five pages, one double-sided, one envelope.
