Item is a card sent to John Alward for Father’s Day from his daughter Pauline (Alward) Spatz, which contains a lock of hair. On the envelope is written “Daddy, June 16, 1957, with love” and on the inside the card is signed Pauline, Albert, and Lucky [her dog].
Item is a leather bound autograph album given to Mathilda Wry as a gift on her twentieth birthday. Amongst the autographs are two adjoining pages from roommates in the Mount Allison Ladies’ College (1887), a poem from her sister Mary E. Wry, and several entries from Great Village where Tillie visited and where her fiancée George was later the post master. Some of the entries are probably from sewing clients. There are also additional autographs from 1938 and 1941 written to Tillie’s niece, Mabel Alward.
Items are papers from the provincial Department of Public Works titled, “Statement of expenditure on Roads, Ordinary”. Willard Wry was listed as the commissioner on the form, and the type of work was listed as “dyking”. Three identical blank forms are also included.
