On offer is an archive of three [3] composition notebooks and a letter, documenting two men, John Terreault and Ray Johnson [who appears to be the inspired writer of the two], who canoe from Montreal to New York and back in 1933. 111 pages, with all pages full with writing. Included is a letter from Ray Johnson to Helen (Cotes). The letter is 8 pages full and is written after the canoe trip. Ray met Helen in Little Falls, NY during the canoe trip back from New York. They continued to correspond and eventually got married and moved to Pickle Lake Canada while Ray worked in the Pickle Creek Gold Mine for awhile. They eventually moved to Carthage, NY and then to Manlius, NY. These books are a charming relic of the Depression era and a bit of Americana of a time never to be repeated. VG.
