Letter of June 1902 from Pauline Johnson to "My Bonnie Girl"

The item is a letter dated June 1902 from Pauline Johnson to "My Bonnie Girl". According to the donor, "My Bonnie Girl" was probably Grace Moore, a Vancouver poet and friend of Pauline Johnson. Mrs. Moore presented a book of her poems to the donor's mother Mrs. Edith Gray; apparently the Johnson letter was found inside that book of poems.
