My dear Annie,
I am trying to get off tomorrow afternoon to Montreal if I can get at all but I have so much baggage to drag with me that I had perhaps better come down to Brockville on Friday morning and leave my luggage there and go right on by the train to Montreal- I would then have to return on Saturday arriving at Brockville after midnight and stay at the Hotel and come in on Monday morning- or I may send some of the luggage on by express–
At all events- write to me at St. Lawrence Hall Montreal and send on copy of Life Insurance Policy (not the policy itself)- If I don’t go- I can write for letter to be returned.
