W-MCP3-5.027 TO THOMAS B. MCQUESTEN, ESQ. from his mother, Mary Baker McQuesten
Jul 3 1906
To: Thomas Baker McQuesten 22 Grosvenor St., Toronto, Ontario
My dearest Tom,
Went into library and looked at the Globe as far as I could understand your crew came in first, though the Argonauts did not win. Am sending you a Macassa ticket in case you cannot take the Turbinia as the Turbinia at twelve noon. Perhaps you could take down your suit case in the morning with you and slip off at twelve.
Ruby comes on Thursday night. Will you please get me a box of tooth paste. With fondest love.
[P.S.] Before closing letter it occurred to me to wait for this evening's paper as after July 1st time-tables are settled for summer, so the "Turbinia" also leaves at 2, lest you should miss it, (but try not to) will still send ticket as Macassa leaves at 5:15 and Turbinia not till 6:30.
