Notes
Please note: language pertaining to Indigenous Peoples used throughout is outdated and may be offensive. Letters are mostly typed, some hand-written. Many typed letters have hand-written notes and post scripts added throughout. Some letters are marked with a small x in pencil, indicating where Jon Whyte made notes for use in his project "Catharine Robb Whyte, Peter Whyte: Commemorative Portfolio," originally published in 1981. 125-01 is an image, possibly part of a card, not noticeably attached to a letter. 125-60 - possible names written on page 02 in pencil, most likely by Edith Morse Robb.
