W-MCP2-4.030 TO THOMAS B. MCQUESTEN, ESQ, B.A. from his mother, Mary Baker McQuesten
Apr 24 1906 Tuesday Evening
To: Thomas Baker McQuesten 22 Grosvenor St., Toronto, Ontario
From: 'Whitehern'

My dear boy,

Well, I hope you got through to-day to your satisfaction, these wearisome exams. This morning I saw Booker and your suit will be ready to fit whenever you come, he is at his shop every morning. So if you could come up Monday, he would have it ready for you by the end of the week. I am afraid only one boat will be running, and the train fare I really cannot afford. Cal. is a great deal better quite cheered up and intends leaving Tuesday May 1st, so if you were coming Monday I would get the druggist to send over some tooth-paste. Then, you told me when your room rent is due but you must be owing for your board, so just let me know what you need. I know you are very busy, so am enclosing a card, that you may let me know if you are coming Monday, so I can write druggist and also if you have any money at all to bring you home. With much love dearie.

Your loving mother

M.B. McQuesten
