Dear Friend - Just a word to let you know I have not forgotten you. I am getting along fine only I am very busy . I am making Mabels wedding cloths in the evenings and it does not give me much time for anything else. How is the baby? Getting fat I hope. Tell Bertie I saw Santa yesterday. Oh say how was there (pictures? illegible). Well guess I had better say good bye with love from your friend. Y.S.

John Harrower and Family - 40 St. Matthews Ave. Hamilton, On.
Herbert and John H. were both employed as Pattern Makers - perhaps this also brought them together as friends, although Herbert worked for Smart Turner and John H. for an elevator company.
The 1911 census for the Harrowers on 40 St. Matthews : John Harrower (1858 - 1936) Scotch - immigrated in 1905, Pattern Maker at an elevator company (52), wife Jane/Jeanie (51), sons David (26), Thomas (24), James (22) and daughters Margaret (20), Jean (Jane) (16) and Ina (Williamina) (14). They had 3 other children who passed away before they immigrated. Lodger William McCleod (36) also came to Canada in 1905 - a molder at an elevator company
John and Jean Harrower and their three daughters - teen Margaret, Jane/Jean 10 - 12 years old, and Ina 7-9 years old.
The Harrower family including their three older sons this time accompanied by Mrs Woolley sitting on the left. The picture is dated 1915/1916. Margaret is 2nd from left in the back row, gave birth to her 2nd son in summer of 1916. She does not look pregnant here, so this must have been taken in 1915.
The Harrower Family with sons and daughters. Annie Woolley second from left in back, Thomas Arthur Woolley - Real Estate Agent - 3rd from right in back. Unknown man sitting on the right in the middle row.
1911 Census for the Woolleys: Thomas Arthur Woolley 42 yrs (1869 - 1944) - real estate agent, with wife Annie 40 yrs and two sons - Clifford 14 yrs (written as Clifton) and William Allan 5 yrs, they lived on 66 William street. They're listed as Presbyterian.
Herbert Fox and John Harrower and the Woolleys are brought together in the 1917 St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church annual report: Herbert is one of the Board of Management, John Harrower is 1st. vice-Chairman, and a C. Wooley is in a list of soldiers at the back of the book in an honor call to soldiers. Clifford Wooley went MIA in 1916 WWI and was never found.
