From Henry2 York.  Published in the Meaford (ON) Monitor.

Editor Monitor, Dear Sir - Enclosed find a dollar for paper.

We have had a favorable winter, very little snow, scarcely enough for sleighing.

I was surprised at reading in your last monitor, that farmers had just commenced ploughing.  Up here in Manitoba, we commenced to sow our wheat the first of April.  We have in 80 acres, 26 of which is nicely up, looking quite green.  The land being dry, it never worked better.

Political parties have nearly quit mud throwing, and things now go on as usual.  We are all well here.  Accept our kind regards.  Yours, Henry York.

P.S. Thom has 100 acres of wheat sown.
