A letter from Ethelwyn Wetherald to Frank Page, 24 March n.d. Ethelwyn recounts stories of her father cutting down trees as a boy in Rockwood and discusses how "surely do the deep woods bring out all the poetry in on'es nature." Included in the letter is a "Christmas Toast to a Happy Warrior" which reads "Here's to a fellow that's earning his crown, And daily, invisibly wears it; Here's to a fighter who, when he's cast down, Laughingly, wittily bears it; Here's to a man from his head to his shins, Making a jest of his bruises; Here's to Our Friend, who is great when he wins, And shrinks not an inch when he loses. "Adapted from 'Toast to a Happy Warrior' by H.J. Phillips in New York Sun"
