The letters concern farming, community development and their families. The letters contain exceptional detail regarding farming operations. This material is located on microfilm reel A-2164. The letters provide very great detail about their success at farming: acreage, taxes, buildings, machinery, fruit trees, harvests, farm stock, etc. The letters also make many references to family members and to the great advantages of emigration to Canada.
