Prof. V.W. Jackson, 165 Main West, has received a letter from Mr. Harvey Monty, of Dryden, Ontario, which has him completely outdated and asking for help from oldtimers. The letter states: "I was born at Merrickville in 1868, and when quite young we moved to Grimsby, and my father, Hiram Monty, drove the grey horses for the Grout Foundry. We lived along the creek just back of the foundry for 8 years, and then moved out west. Now at 75 I have no proof of age, as births were not registered in 1868, so cannot claim old age pension. Is there anyone in Grimsby now, who can recall me or my family in Grimsby in the 80's, and offer some proof or evidence of my age?" If so kindly write - Harvey E. Monty, Dryden, Ont.
