Dear Kirk:

Thanks for your Christmas greetings, and your 'free Alexandrines' which I greatly enjoyed. You are the most versatile writer in Canada, and I always admired you even from the Winnipeg days.

I'd write you at greater length but my arthritis is hitting my fingers as it does my hands. Still I feel better and I'm getting out a bit.


Winnipeg days
Kirkconnell had taught at Wesley (later United) College in Winnipeg (1922-40). The college later became the University of Winnipeg.
