GEORGE HOGGARTH – Hotel Proprietor

                Cranbrook, B.C., March 5, 1908.

Dear Simpson:

                I want to congratulate the Herald and yourself upon your tenth anniversary.  I came to the mountains first in 1889 and to Fort Steele in 1892.  Since then the country has changed a great deal and there are not a great many of the old-timers left.  Among those who were in the valley at that time were William Goodridge, Roger Moore, Pat Quirk, George Doherty, Dave Griffith, Peter Boyle, Bob Mathers, the Fenwick boys, the late Bob Dewar, one of the discoverers of the Wild Horse placers and who came in in 1864, Jack Weaver (after whom Weaver creek is named), Tom Roberts, now of Elko, and many others.  I believe the Herald has done a lot of good work in upbuilding Cranbrook and the district, and I wish you every possible success.

                                                                                Yours truly,

                                                                                                George Hoggarth
