"Dear Betty" -- Letters from Helen Dawe and Betty Youngson, 1977, Page 2

Helen shares tips for overcoming insomnia. Betty sends Helen an ashtray with historic Sechelt connections. Helen hears from two former Sechelt one-room school teachers. Former neighbours visit Sechelt after a long absence and remember trails where now there are roads.

Dear Mrs. Youngson,

How kind it is for you to remember me in such a special way.

Dear Helen,

This is a beautiful letter Florence Cairns wrote and she has such complete recall (after all these years it is absolutely amazing.)
