Letter from Harry Hereford, to L. Guimont, July 15, 1940

This typewritten letter is from Harry Hereford, Dominion Commissioner, to L. Guimont, General Director, Board of Economic Reconstruction, Department of Labour, Government of Quebec. Written on July 15, 1940, the letter pertains to the family of internee Antonio Monaco. The family had been on government relief prior to the internment, but the relief had been discontinued on June 26th. Hereford questions the cancellation and asks that the case be investigated further.

Enemy aliens were not entitled to government relief. However, the families of interned men could apply for relief. It appears the Monaco family may have been caught in this bureaucratic red tape.

Antonio's brothers, Vincenzo and Donato Monaco, were also interned.
