King Edward Hotel
J. C. Calhoun
10180 . 101st Street
Edmonton – Alberta
July 13th 1937
I am leaving at 8:00 a.m. tomorrow via McKenzie Airways. The letter from Trail doesn’t say where I am to work (Goldfields or Grt. Slave Lake) so I can’t give you my address yet. I have been busy buying supplies this morning and I hope I have bought everything I need for awhile. Excess baggage on the plane is 10¢ a lb. I am allowed only 35 lbs. on my ticket which was $25.00 to McMurray. I should have left this afternoon if I hadn’t let the hotel ascertain when the planes were leaving. About 30 minutes ago I phoned Canadian Airways thinking they might have a plane leaving earlier than 8:00 tomorrow and found a plane was leaving in about 20 minutes from Cooking Lake so I just couldn’t make it.
I was able to sleep in on the train till 11:30 and slept a little in the afternoon so I have almost caught up.
Today is the first day of an all week exhibition and there was a huge parade this morning with floats, bands etc.
With love from
