From: Matt Broman

May 16th, 1941.

Dear Sir:-

Thank you for your letter of May 13th.

It is always a pleasure to help you out and never a bother for us. I think the roses and the viburnum will do all right.

I am longing very much for the day when I may have the pleasure of being with you for a whole day, if you will be kind and arrange the day when it suits you best.

I will take three good Coronation Oaks over to Mr. Chester Walters, Port Credit, to-morrow.

I have my citizenship papers, and now I feel more satisfied with myself in having the pleasure to work for you and your Department.

Yours very respectfully,[Likely from Matt Broman]1,2
