W-MCP1-3b.017 TO [REV.] CALVIN MCQUESTEN from his mother, Mary Baker McQuesten
Jan 13 1904 Wednesday
To: Calvin McQuesten [Macleod, Alberta]
From: 'Whitehern'

My dear Calvin,

This morning came the inclosed letter directed to you, but as I recognized the handwriting, I could not resist the amusement of reading it. Isn't he funny? Think I had better send "News" about the Indians too. It is snowing fast and has been doing so since last night. You might send J. McO's letter on to Tom. Yesterday our auxiliary meeting filled the room which is encouraging. With much love.

Your mother

M.B. McQuesten

[P.S.] By-the-way the Youth's Companion has sent me a copy of its paper & also a very pretty calendar, it stands up like a screen. I will send the paper, it is a very good number. Shall I send the calendar, if you have any place to put it or would like it to give to someone, I can do so.
