My dear Nannie .. Mr Onderdonk came down a few days ago not feeling well — I went over with him to Victoria we had not been an hour on salt water before we felt invigorated by the sea breeze and by 1 p.m felt ravenously hungry and ate a huge dinner.

New Westminster, B.C. 31 Aug 1883 Marcus Smith letter to his wife

My dear Nannie, I was over part of the line with Mr. Schreiber which wasted several days – as it was a mere scamper like the visits of the Commissioners on the Intercolonial. Immediately after Mr. Onderdonk and myself walked over the line from Port Moody to Hope 70 miles – it was hot and dusty and we were nearly choked with smoke which has continued nearly two months – so I am tired and foot sore

New Westminster, B.C. 17 Sep 1883 Marcus Smith Letter

My dear Nannie, I mentioned in my last letter that we had been over two months in perpetual gloom from the dense smoke of forrest fires – a week ago this came to an end we had two days heavy rain and now we have variable weather _ rain and sunshine cold enough for occasional fire in the grate – I am still very busy and shall be till the end of the year but most of the heavy outdoor work is over for a while – Tom has plenty of work and is thriving on it. I think it possible I may return home about the end of the year and perhaps not come back.

New Canada Post stamp for Ukraine Humanitarian Relief

Brian Grant Duff, owner and operator of the All Nations Stamp and Coin shop in Vancouver, says the stamps could be difficult to find.

“It’s going to be hard to get because they only made 50,000 booklets, so 500,000 stamps, in booklets of 10 … I understand that post offices will probably get something like 100 booklets each and the first day cover is extremely limited and hard to get they only made 7000 examples.”

New Westminster, B.C. 15 Oct 1883 Marcus Smith letter to wife

My dear Nannie,.. I thought he had done with the school and was now going to attend the University courses of lectures and would have to pass an annual examination there. this appears to be the case. A few days ago I met Judge Grey with other professional gentlemen they all strongly advised – a University course and_ if _as is likely _ at the end of 3 years he will get the degree of B.A. – it will enable him to practice as a barrister in any part of the Dominion..
