Letter from farmer Jos. Geo. Routhier to Sir Robert Borden, Prime Minister of Canada, 24 September 1918
In this letter, Monsieur Routhier asks the Prime Minister if he may acquire a pass so that he and his family can cross the Quebec Bridge. He tells Borden that he has tried over ten times to get such a pass, but each request had been denied. During this time the protection of the Quebec Bridge, including the issuance and observation of bridge passes, was administered by the Dominion Police.
