W-MCP5-6.297 TO [DR.] CALVIN BROOKS MCQUESTEN from his father Dr. Calvin McQuesten
Mar 8 1865
To: [Dr.] Calvin Brooks McQuesten,
From: Hamilton, [Ontario]
My Dear Son,
You may call at the Globe office and pay them nine
Dollars for their paper.
No one has called here for the pay this year and I do not know who their agent is for Hamilton.
Neither do I recollect when my last year was up but I
am quite sure that nine Dollars will more than pay the past and one year to come, take a receipt for the amount you pay and when they call inform me here. I can settle with them and get the exact time this year commenced.
[Dr.] Calvin McQuesten
As you will Mother and Abbie [sic] they can tell you all the nonsense you will want to hear so I do not see what good it will do to spare good paper for that purpose. You enquired about Pants [sic] and the Calf so I will tell you
that there has no great misfortune befallen them.
The Calf is a most wonderful animal. I think it will be a Cow in year from next fall. You can probably spare a little of the Gass [sic] money to mother if she wants. You will have $61 in after paying for the Globe and I think you will not need all that before you come home. I was told by
the man I bot [sic] of that my last purchase of stock would carry the dividend but I have learnt since that it will only
get $70 this time. First day of May you will get $94.
[Dr. Calvin McQuesten]
