Box 12-086 TO REV. CALVIN MCQUESTEN from Marion Robinson
Jan 7 1915
To: Rev. Calvin McQuesten 'The Manse' Buckingham, Quebec
From: 188 Dufferin Road, Ottawa, Ontario

Dear Calvin,

Thank you for the Princess Mary Book which I am very glad to have. There are a great many interesting things in it and we all enjoy looking it over.

You should be feeling a little bit at home by this time. I am anxious to hear whether you are moving into the manse at once and all the other details. Perhaps we'll see you at the time of the next Presbytery meeting. There are women's meetings at the same time and we have asked Mr. McLaren to bring his wife to stay with us (from Russell).

I see that Ruby's friend Mrs. Hannaford has a son born a day or two ago. She already has a daughter Lois with the brownest eyes. I like Mrs. Hannaford so much. With best wishes for your new year and thanks for your good wishes to us.

Sincerely yours,

Marion Robinson
