Just think Mayes and Baby knew me when they saw me at Station. You will be a very brave little girl with Mother away, never mind, soon, it will be your turn next. Love to all from your loving Auntie Kate (2) - Keremeos, B.C. - January 28, 1910 - Dear Bessie, Just another P.C. to ask how you all are. Asking are you still going out sleighing? We are having very mild weather, quite like spring. I will write you soon. I wish George and I are going to Spokane - ???????? on your boat, but will let you know. Give my love to all. Lovingly yours. K. L. (Kate ?) Addressed to: Miss Bessie Clark / (708) 807 Carbonate Street / Nelson / British Columbia Unable to figure out who Bessie Clark and Kate L. was... In the fall of 1910 Clara Mae (nee Manhart) Longhurst and her husband Charles Longhurst (married 14 September 1910 in Nelson, B.C.) moved into the house on 807 Carbonate Street in Nelson, B.C. - Miss Bessie Clark was still living at 807 Carbonate Street in Nelson, B.C. during late January 1910. Was she living with her parents, relatives or friends during this time period, I do not know....and what became of her? The only other "Clark" I can find who was living in Nelson B.C. was - Richard J. Clark - he was the editor of the Nelson Daily News and was living in the Nelson Hotel. Richard Joseph Clark (b. 3 March 1876 in Kingston, Ontario - d. 4 January 1918 in Dorval, Montreal Region, Quebec) His mother - Mary (nee Whitcomb) Clark His father - William Thomas Clark (6 May 1910) - Richard J. Clark, at one time of the Colonist, and well known to printers and newspapermen throughout all sections of British Columbia, has been appointed by the heirs of the late John Houston to take editorial and general charge of the fortunes of the Fort George Tribune, and has already left for Ouesnel en route to his new field of duty. In the Tribune and the making of Fort George, John Houston left a legacy of heavy responsibilities, in the administration of which Mr. Clark will have the best wishes of all the fraternity. THE VANCOUVER WORLD FIFTEEN Saturday, Jan. 5, 1918 FORMER EDITOR AMONG KILLED Late Richard J. Clark, Known as High School Teacher, Was Newspaperman at Hope and Nelson. TOOK M.A. DEGREE AT KINGSTON UNIVERSITY Privates Hunter and Veitch Well Known in the Cariboo Country. Widespread regret will be felt at the news that Mr. Richard J. Clark, who was known in the social circles of several cities of British Columbia, was among those lost in the railway disaster. Mr. Clark, who had the distinction of taking the degree of Master of Arts at Queen's University, Kingston, at an age so young as almost to constitute a record, came .to this province in 1898 and entered the teaching profession as assistant in the Wellington public school, Vancouver Island. He subsequently taught in the Victoria, New Westminster and Nelson high schools, being principal of the latter. While at Nelson he abandoned his profession for that of Journalism, becoming editor of the Nelson News. Subsequently he founded a mining paper at Hope but lost everything in the fire there about a year ago, following which he joined the Railway Guards to die in his country's service. A well - informed man and a brilliant conversationalist, the late Mr. Clark was the delight of the circles which had the privilege of including him. A brother (?- this is not correct as Robert Lennox Clark was born in Scotland / his father was Andrew Clark), Mr. Lennox Clark, who Is on the South Vancouver teaching staff, survives. Private Hunter, who was killed, came from the northern Cariboo country lust June to enlist, and in company with Private E. Veitch, the two men were making their last trip across Canada before going overseas. Veitch, who suffered a broken leg, is a son of one of the Cariboo pioneers, and part owner of one of the biggest ranches in the Quesnel district. He is only 21 years of age. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I dig a bit deeper and find this information: Nelson Daily News - 19 June 1904 - Ymlr Youngsters will Take High School Entrance Examination [Special lo The Daily News,] Ymlr.
