Irving Letto is seeking two former penpals in England of his mother, Elsie Letto, in Labrador, Canada. One is a Miss E. Birch, who, in 1952, sent two Bibles for Mr Letto, when he was seven, and his brother, and inscribed her name on the front flyleaf. The second is a Mrs Nutt (pictured). Mr Letto would be grateful to hear from any family member or friend of these ladies. He believes that they may have been readers of the Church Times. He can be contacted by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
