When I bade my friends goodbye at Montreal in 1910 and boarded the train for Calgary, almost the last words said to me were: "Well, you are a brave girl to go away out to that western city all alone." I, myself, was not conscious of any bravery, for I had heard much of Calgary, which is situated within sight of the mighty Rockies. I have mentioned the above remarks simply to show there is yet in the minds of some easterners that Calgary is still a crude prairie city, lacking many advantages of social, literary, and artistic culture, and where the woman of the home is deprived of many accustomed conveniences and luxuries. It is to correct these errors and show Calgary as it really is, that is the purpose for which this open letter is written.
