Hayle Mail, May 1st 1914

Cornish Arms Hotel.

I am glad to inform our patrons that we are now finally settled, and that
the majority of our patrons think we have done the right thing in moving
more up town. It is an ideal spot and a splendid place, although, of course,
a few old timers that have been making the Star Hotel their headquarters for
the past twenty or thirty years find it kind of strange at first as they
know that neighbourhood almost as well as I do, but they have to admit it is
an ideal spot.

Mr. Richard Vingoe who came in from Akron, Ohio, to meet Miss Janie Wallis
from Penzance, was married in Brooklyn on April 9th. It was a very nice
wedding, and all the boys that were here en route to Cornwall or the west
wished them all kinds of luck.

The Cornish Association meet on the 18th of April for their entertainment
and at the present time over two hundred tickets have been sold. It will be
a splendid affair, pasties, saffron cake, buttered buns, etc., all to be
made by Cornish women, and my mouth waters now when I think of what a treat
I am in for; and I know I am not the only one who thinks the same way. At
home you don't appreciate these things so much, because you are able to have
them almost any time, but when you get away from Cornwall and go a year or
more without it is a treat when you find you can have as much as you like.

I wish our patrons would memorize our new address, as it is in the near
future, I think, when we will give up the Star as the neighbourhood is
getting worse all the time. Below is a list of the travelers going to and
fro this last week. I will write a full list of those attending the Cornish dinner, held in the
Cornish Arms in my next letter.

Sincerely yours, SID BLAKE
