W-MCP3-5.058 TO THOMAS B. MCQUESTEN from his brother [Rev.] Calvin McQuesten
Apr 1 1908 Wednesday
To: Thomas Baker McQuesten 22 Grosvenor St. Toronto, Ontario
From: The Iroquois Hotel Saskatoon, Saskatchewan

My dear Tom,

Reached here this afternoon and found everything O.K. My stuff all arrived before me, and the lot I shipped from Toronto has already been taken out to Glenhurst. Young Clark came to town to-day and will drive me out to-morrow with my trunk and the load from Hamilton. I also hear that my shack is ready for me, so feel quite fixed up.

I have exactly $100 left now, and will have to break in on it to pay my hotel bill here and my expenses on the way out. So I am afraid I shall have to beg another $10 dollars from you , as I hear that horses are dearer than ever.

Please remember me to Sid and believe me,

Yours as ever

Calvin McQuesten
