Mr. Rees Davis,
Island Falls,
Manitoba.

Dear Mr. Davis ;

My material is now being whipped into shape and I'm sorry to find the only picture I have of Island Falls - besides the three films you gave me showing the floating island - is an airplane postcard view.

I'd appreciate a close-up of the community hall with details of its size, equipment, etc. and how it was built by the men.

Guess I can get the plant photos from Winnipeg.

A couple of good snaps of the guest house - your home - and the main street with store and if you can give me a group snap of some of your good looking ladies headed by Mrs. Davis and daughter, I'd like it. Another of the Cree Indians and their village would be good too.

My rough notes so far on Island Falls are enclosed, please comment on them and return before I submit to Mr. Channing to see how much I may publish.

Thanks for all your kindness and apologies to Mrs. Davis for "keeping her up late nights!"

Sincerely,

Advertising Manager.
Per.
