The Maxwells of Montreal Vol II, Violette Nakhjavani, p300
In regard to your winter’s work he would urge you not to attempt to remain in Montreal during the cold months . . . but to go somewhere warm – New York, if not too cold . . . or perhaps South or even to California if necessary . . . He urges Daddy to so arrange his affairs that he can spend at least a part of the time with you so that neither of you will be alone, at least for very long, this winter.
