Dear Mom + Dad
Just a few lines to let yous know I am okay and having lots of fun. I bumped into Demps on the train in Montreal last night and I’ve been with him ever since so will you go up and let his mother know. It lots of fun riding on the train, we passed snow 3 and 4 feet deep. I seen nearly all of the St. Lawrence and lots of hills. We had dinner and supper on the train yesterday and breakfast and dinner to-day. We’ll be having supper too. My seat is awful sore from sitting and my back is tired of sleeping, but its lots of fun.
Demps and I will send a cable as soon as we arrive.
Well that’s all for now.
[Shannan’s Note – I’m not to sure where Gord is going yet, but the address at the top of the letter said “Somewhere in Hell”…]
