Jun 7 1869 Monday
To: Isaac Baldwin McQuesten, Hamilton, Ontario
From: Toronto, Ontario
I.B. McQuesten, Esq.,
I received your note and would have answered it sooner but was not able to get the desired information. The Examiners met on Saturday and did not get through until six &c. and then I could not get such information as I required. Mr. Patterson told me you were all right and that he would see you on Monday and let you know, however I now can tell
you all is well but your standing I cannot send until
tomorrow. Convocation takes place on Thursday [?th] and the
list is expected to be up tomorrow.
Dale has taken three Scholarships. Cumming has taken Princes prize Gold Medal in Met'ic & silver in Math. H.G. Bickford is [plucked?]. W. Bickford1 is through, Coyne has taken two Scholarships. Langton has taken the gold in Classics, Biggar in Lat. & I believe there is no Scholarship
in 3rd year Metaphysics.
As you intend coming down to [can?] I shall leave off for I cannot give you any more information such as you might rely on. You are first class in German.2 I hope you are well &c.
I am Sir
1 William Bickford was a friend of Isaac's from law school; H.G. Bickford is likely Henry Bickford who appears to be William's brother (W-MCP5-6.256 and footnote).
2 Isaac graduated in honours in Modern Languages.
