Back to Decendents of Josh Humphreys


Page 1 of letter written by Frederick Valentine Humphreys in 1925 to his parents in Saskatchewan. He has found work in San Francisco and seems pleased to have it.  Others who came with him have gone back home without finding work.  The top of the page before the greeting is a spill over from page 3 of the letter.  He signs his initials on this page but signs off with Your loving son and bro, "Freddie" on page 3.  The letter reveals the type of work and wages that were available during this time. The letter also reveals the warmth and affection that family members have for each other. 

Freddie is Joshua and Emma's grandson by their eldest son Frederick Lake Humphreys and his wife Annie Joy Humphreys.
