receipt of desk NL to Brockville CPR C Morgan

This tissue thin document packs a weighty message. It’s just a freight receipt. All rather banal and hardly worth keeping. Unless you know the subtext. Miss C Morgan took delivery of an office desk and supplies October 27, 1915. The goods were shipped from Morgan’s office in New Liskeard to his sister Constance in Brockville. The same papers and letters that are with me, now.
