Undated letter, found in a 1937 variable star logbook from Toronto.

Dear Miss Northcott

I have nothing of importance to report this month.

have a rotten cold for 3 weeks from being up at Crystal Lake.

Some gentlemen from Barrie came on evening at 10:30, and they were amateur astronomers. I was at work, until 2:30AM so missed them.

Three new places put up around here with glowing flood lights after dark, needlessly lighting up the sky instead of the immediate area around their property.

Dear Miss Northcott

I expect you will be just returning from your vacation. I think you had them July last year. I get, last in Aug + first two weeks left and as I see to have my weed sneezes about then I guess I will either sneeze here or go north past the dust of it.

I am diapointed [sic] at having no good nights this last week, as there was no moon. I note in Journal the success of Miss Paterson, I hope her new position is well liked by her.

This is a transcription of the letter:

IKW June 26 [1960]

Dear Ruth,

Here are the prints you selected from our Annual Meeting collection. I relied on the list of numbers Mr. MacLennan gave me and hope I haven't made any mistakes. Also enclosed is duplicate of a slide of Dr. McKellar, taken by Constantine [Papacosmos], which we thought was exceptionally good.
