W-MCP3-5.033 TO THOMAS B. MCQUESTEN, ESQ, B.A. from his mother, Mary Baker McQuesten
Nov 30 1906 [approximate date]
To: Thomas Baker McQuesten 22 Grosvenor St., Toronto, Ontario
From: 'Whitehern'

My dearest Tom,

We have been house-cleaning the sitting-room to-day had the carpet up and pictures down so I am very tired particularly after yesterday's long day.1 Most quiet sail home, Bright moonlight! Mrs. Dr. Wolverton walked up with me. The Company have again refused to take all the men back, though ordered by Railway Commission. So it seems hopeless again. It seems at the Opera House the other night the Gibson's were hissed and much uproar, the manager was obliged to ask them to withdraw.

R. heard from Ottawa to-day that Mrs. Needham has typhoid. Poor little Miss Boyd, it is pretty hard on her. Well, dearie, must close. With fondest love

Your mother

[M.B. McQuesten]
