W-MCP6-1.389 TO THOMAS B. MCQUESTEN from his mother Mary Baker McQuesten
Oct 3 1910 Monday [date estimated]
To: Thomas B. Mcquesten Whitehern, Hamilton, Ontario
From: Gravenhurst, [Ontario]
From your letter this morning, I see you are not sure of the day I am coming. I thought I had told it plainly more than once that I was coming Tuesday that is to-morrow. Of course I'll take 11 o'clock train. And I had written Rachel to do upstairs sweeping on the Tuesday, that would save you trouble of having to see to kitchen [fire?] the day I was arriving. However, it will be alright; and hope this will reach you in time to let you know you had better send all the rent money up by P.O. order, not a bank order to Mary, as they will need all or most of it to bring them home, and pay month's bills.
Then, if we are to get Peterson to make another window in cottage you had better try and arrange an hour for him to meet us there on Wednesday morning.
Will be very glad to be on my own home again, and [?]
Your Loving Mother
M. B. McQuesten
[P.S.] Too bad Staunton got the Steel business.
