Dear Alice, and all at home,
The war has started
I was glad to get your letter on sept 12th and I did not get any other letters you sent before Christmas. It is a fight to the finish Canada has gone to a finish no fooling this time.
Returning men are going up by the thousands and no turning back. They have got into Warsaw and the women are fighting like tigers.
I am very well but I don't work much only at my own clothes. 3 years war if not more. Hoping to hear from you at any time. Give my best wishes to all.
From your father Preston North
Deseronto Canada xxxx Bye bye

North, Preston John

Copies of two photographs:

    The picture is undated, but E. I. Gale was Principal of the school between 1922 and 1926. There is a high overlap of team members with the 1926-1927 team photograph, so this may be the 1925-1926 hockey team.
