Ottawa 16 Jan. 1904

My dear Lord Brassey,

I beg the honour of introducing to you Miss Pauline Johnson of Brantford Ontario Canada Miss Johnson belongs to the powerful tribe of the Six Nations whom the French called the Iroquis, and who in the old colonial wars and in the war of Independence of the United States always were faithful to the British Crown.

Miss Johnson is a very highly cultured lady and she is endowed with a remarkable poetic latent and with high dramatic powers, Miss Johnson I understand is going to England on a lecture tour.

Believe me my dear Lord Brassey,

Yours very sincerely

(Signed) Wilfred Laurier

The Right Honourable

Lord Brassey

London Eng.
