"Dear Betty"





"Dear Betty" -- Letters from Helen Dawe and Betty Youngson, 1973, Page 1

The first year of correspondence in the collection sets the tone for the decade that followed. Helen updates Betty on the who, what and where of Sechelt. Betty supplies Helen with amusing and interesting details of days past on topics that include the school privy and the cows she avoided on the way to and from school. With encouragement from Helen, Betty's memories of the Sechelt 'jail' are published in the local paper.

Dear Bill,

Thanks so much for your very thoughtful phone call. I passed your good wishes onto mother and she really appreciated your kindness.

Dear Betty,

Please give my regards to your mother. I do hope that her recovery continues steadily and that there soon is sufficient warmth in the sun to tempt her out into your garden.

Dear Helen,

I was thrilled and delighted to hear from you. Your letter and the Draft arrived on Tuesday and I congratulate you on doing such a wonderful job.
