Scope and content

"Editor of Witness, Bradford, Ontario.
Dear Sir:
Just a few lines to acknowledge receiving The Bradford Witness very regularly and must say I am very thankful to Hon. Earl Rowe and to you for being so good as to provide us boys with the paper, as it sure is great to read the news of good old Bradford and district.
As for news over here, it is very scarce. It seems as though the friends I had back in Canada have given up writing since I came over here, though I certainly have done my part as I have written to several, but no answer, and I make a practice of answering any letter I get. Of course, their replies may have been lost at sea.
However, I receive The Witness very regularly, and that means a whole lot when I don't get any other mail. Again I send my thanks to Mr. Rowe and you for this great pleasure, and also to the Bradford Corps Association. They have been real good to me. Yours truly, Jack Donnelly.
B. 49-511 - Pte. Jack Donnelly, R.C.O.C. No. 2 Detachment, M.T. Depot, Can. Army Overseas."
