Scope and Content
File contains letter from Anderson Department Store employee E.G. Cooper to W.A. Andrews, a former employee and member of the 2nd Battalion, Canadian Expeditionary Forces during the First World War
Letter is dated January 14, 1917, has a St. Thomas postmark and a London, England postmark (letter was received through the Army Post Office in the U.K. and sent to Andrews somewhere in France)
In addition to personal sentiments of support, letter contains information of historical relevance; Cooper states that the newspapers are predicting imminent peace, particularly the American press, which Cooper feels "cannot have very much bearing on any peace terms that may be arranged by the allies, and why should it?" (the Americans would not join the war until April of the same year)
Cooper discusses the rising costs of goods; says that in particular, the price of food is high, but rationalizes this change through the motto "anything to win the war, those that won't or can't fight, must pay."
Also mentions that 153rd Battalion of St. Thomas is preparing to deploy; and that a Lieutenant Berson arrived home from the war, looking poorly, but received a warm reception from the military band, cadets, and citizens

Letter is dated July 15, 1916, and is typed on "The Anderson Company, Limited" stationery; sent to England where Andrews received military training
Anderson expresses his relief at receiving a cable message from Andrews and mentions that he had already received messages from three privates, which made him worry about Andrews, because, he says, "it would seem strange that a private's message should get thorugh before an Officers."
Mentions that the people of St. Thomas are proud that there are very few reports of desertions in the 91st battalion, especially considering that a troop from Quebec had 190 desertions
States that about 40 or 50 more St. Thomas men have enlisted, and will join the No. 1 Construction Battalion
Shares news about the department store (staff going on holidays, renovations, etc.)

File contains a collection of letters written on December 6, 1916, from various Anderson Department Store employees to Warren Andrews, a former employee and member of the 2nd Battalion, Canadian Expeditionary Forces during the First World War
Letters are all written on 9.5 cm x 14.5 cm sheets of paper, and mostly contain messages of support for the war and holiday cheer for Christmas; many employees describe events that have been taking place at the store since Anderson's absence (new Christmas decorations et. al.); a few letters reveal that St. Thomas had been having an unseasonably warm December, with a good chance of a green Christmas
Letters were posted to "somewhere in France"
