Wm Armstrong Esq.
Toronto, Aug. 15th, 1902.
Sometime ago you were informed by this Department that a medal had been awarded you for a special exhibit of Fruit at the Pan-American Exhibition. At our request you selected a Sterling Silver Medal. The medal has since been prepared and is now being mailed to you address.
May I suggest that this is no mean honor that has been conferred upon you: it is an evidence of your loyal interest in the progress and prosperity of our Province of Ontario. Allow me heartily to congratulate you on your success. You will hand down to your family this evidence of your industry and skill, and I trust that its presence in the household will incite every member to press toward even higher attainments in improving the quality of the products which have already won for you such distinctive recognition.
Yours very truly,
Minister of Agriculture.
