"Dear Betty"





"Dear Betty" -- Letters from Helen Dawe and Betty Youngson, 1981, Page 2

A postal strike slows Helen and Betty's correspondence. Funds are raised for Rockwood Lodge. Real estate prices are 'insane.' Developers' make ongoing efforts to build up Sechelt. Betty provides Helen with a detailed floor plan of the Relief Office where she worked (including the space occupied by her employer's dogs), but is puzzled that she is unable to remember the location of any bathroom facilities.

Dear Helen and dear Bill,

I thought I would make a start on a letter to you today as a look at the calendar tells me that a reply to your lovely and most welcome August letter is long past due.

Dear Betty,

Many happy returns of the day in health and good spirits. "Police Office". You have again broken into print locally.

Dear Bill and Helen

Thanks so much for your thoughtful birthday phone call, Bill. It was great.

Dear Helen and Bill,

Before the old year rolls out (and the postage goes up) cheapskate me decided to at least make a start on a letter to you today, even thought it won't be mailed for a while.
