Duke of Devonshire wants a share of Canada's Second Victory Loan. The following letter explains why: Ottawa, October, 1918. My Dear Sir Thoma�, I shall be glad if you will again include my name In the first I let of subscribers to tile Victory Loan of 1918, This loan I am sure is of tho utmost national importance in connection with Canada's continued effectual prosecution of the war, and thrj establishment of Imperial credits for the purchase of foodstuffs, munitions and other supplies urgently required by Great Britain and the Allies. I have every confidence that the patriotism of the Canadian people: which has so nobly sustained every duty and obligation Imposed by the' war will again respond to the appeal and that the Victory Loan of 1918 will be even a more striking and notable success than that of last year. Believe me, my dear 8lr Thomas, Yours very truly, (Sd.) DEVONSHIRE. Hon, Sir Thomas White, K.C., M.G., Ottawa.
