Dear Mrs Thomson:

I want to thank you for your attention to the Canadian Writers' grant of $100.00 per month. You have been a real dear.

Lorne Pierce informs me that the grant is exempt from the Income Tax. Does that mean that neither you nor the National Trust sends the T4 form to the Tax Department. He says that as the gift is charitable and personal, no record is made except to myself. I trust that is correct as it would save explanation.

The grant has been a wonderful help as my daughter is still in a cast and confined to her bed – two years of it and more to come.

Most gratefully yours,
E.J. Pratt
