Guelph, Canada, October 31st, 1916.
S.J. Hogarth, Esq.,
It has been reported at the college that your son J.G. Hogarth, a former student of the O.A.C., has lost his life in the service of his country. If this report is true you have the heartfelt sympathy of those at the college who knew your son when he was here. We are preparing a “College Honor Roll” and if you can furnish us with a photograph of your son it will assist us very much. Again expressing your sympathy, I am
Yours very truly,
