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.

Yours truly
B Topham
