Dear Mr. Higgs,


I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for presenting to the Public Archives of Canada the most interesting letters relating to Cannington Manor. They reveal the problems of immigrants to Canada in the early days of settlement on the prairies and contain first -hand accounts of an unusual attempt to re-create in the west an 'english' manor.


I enclose a rather poor copy of a report on Cannington Manor which was prepared for the Historic Sites and Monuments Board of Canada of which I am a member.? My copy was equally poor but I hope that you will be able to read it and that you will find it of interest.


Yours Sincerely


W. I. Smith

Dominion Archivist
