To: Thomas McQuesten 41 Isabella St., Toronto, Ontario
My dear dear boy,
Have just had telegram from Cal that he cannot get away. Street-car strike commenced this morning. So I thought perhaps it was putting you [sic] about to come to-night and if you preferred finishing your business, you can. But if you feel like coming to-night and can do no business Monday, just come.
Your loving mother
[P.S.] If you had arranged to give up your room to-day it would be just as well to come home for a couple of days and let us see you and enjoy some of the good things we had been preparing.
