      Dear Mary,
       
      Can you estimate that how much it will cost for me to arrange a trip to your island from Montreal?Maybe I can go to Toronto by bus which will be not expensive because I will share the expense with other people.
       
      How many hours will it take on the road?
       
      I am now studying in Montreal,so I don't  have so much money and time.But I will try my best to have a week's time if I  could have the opportunity to visit your farm and learn from you.
       
      Best wishes,
       
      Christine

      Mary,

      Some day I'm going to visit Manitoulin Island. It must be lovely. My
      brother is part of the "Drummond Island Club" which owns 2200 acres on the
      North-east shore of Drummond. Not far from you. Great place to be. My dad
      vacations in Tober Mory, a bit South from you.

      Happy farming!

      Frank
