W-MCP2-4.076 TO MISS HILDA MCQUESTEN from her mother, Mary Baker McQuesten
Jul 19 1913
To: Hilda McQuesten
From: Chippawa, Ontario

Dearest Hilda,

I am enclosing Times letter, so that you can see what he thinks and I quite agree with what he says. As to your staying in London, in the last letter before I heard from him, I said much the same. This week we all went over the River and enjoyed going thro' the Shredded Wheat and a new Chocolate Factory, said to be the only one. Went to the Public, all new interesting we drove about and saw the old Porter Residence.

Edna and I are going home to-day Saturday and Marian Glassco is coming Monday. Cal. writes me that Cap a l'Aigle is so quiet, he is just staying two weeks and moving on up the Saguenay and will return by Ottawa as Mrs. Robinson invited him to stay. You will see how your friend Mattie is progressing. A warm day and we have just got our packing done. Col. Little took a turn for the better. Take good care of yourself dearie, all send love. Love & Kisses.

Your affectionate mother

M.B. McQuesten
