Letter to Angus McKay from The Tribune:
Letter reading "Office of The Tribune, Winnipeg, Oct. 25th, 1897. Dear Sir,- Some weeks ago we sent you a circular and blank for requesting you to forward us a list of the householders receiving mail matter at your office who are not now subscribers to The Weekly Tribune. As you have evidently overlooked our request we now forward you a number of sample copies of the paper and would ask you to kindly distribute them as far as they will go to those householders, farmers especially, who are not getting The Tribune. We are still anxious to get the list of names we asked for, and would again request that you would send it, indicating as far as you can those to whom you have handed a sample copy of the paper. Our offer to you of a free copy of our great Jubilee picture, "Queen Victoria and her Premiers", still holds good, as well as the offer of The Weekly Tribune, for 50 cents from now to Jany 1st 1899. We are sure you would be delighted with a copy of our beautiful historic premium, and we trust we may hear from you, with the list of names, by return mail. Your careful distribution of the sample copies will greatly oblige. Yours truly, The Tribune Pub. Co."
