Dear Mr. Lewis: It was kind of you to think of me in connection with the Fraser property at St. Patrick's. We had not been thinking of purchasing a summer cottage and I am sure my wife would not want to have the trouble of outfitting one. If, however, this place were to be sold furnished, we might be interested, and I would be thankful to you for any information you could discreetly obtain about it. The property itself and the neighbourhood have much to make the idea of going there very attractive. Yours sincerley, Louis St.Laurent.
