W-MCP2-4.012 TO THOMAS B. MCQUESTEN from his sister Ruby
Jan 28 1904 Wednesday [Postmark]
To: Thomas B. McQuesten 41 Isabella St. Toronto, Ontario
From: Ottawa Ladies' College Ottawa, Ontario

My dear old Tom,

Just a note to send along with Cal's letters.1 How is the world wagging with you?--or does it go so quickly there is no change to wag. I'm afraid it is too busy a world with you at present. So take care of yourself old chappie.

This week has been invalids' week. Four of my girls down with the Grippe. But that is over and now the end of the term looms up when Examination papers & reports reign supreme to the sorrow of Mickey Doo.

Dr. Armstrong has a new small son to be called William Henry--see me smile--and little Jean & Marjory are in a wild state of excitement and pride over it and made one small girl weep because she hadn't one too and she said she was going straight home to tell her mother to get a little baby brother and she knew she would.

I can't say there is any special news. The little things that run off with time are too small to mention, tho' they seemed pretty strong in their way.

I hope you're well and 'blooming.'

With very much love.


1 Ruby is likely sending this note "along with Cal's letter" in order to enclose a money order for Tom's tuition. Otherwise she would likely simply have addressed a letter to both of them.
