To: Thomas B. McQuesten Whitehern, Hamilton. Ontario
From: Box 166, Gravenhurst.
I am just enclosing the cheque and Reding's bill. Sarah will give you the account for June. I hope the cheque will cover all.1
Mary and H. [Hilda] went out with boat last evening, they are delighted with it. It is so light, that it is 'nothing to row.' Rain came on early this morning, very warm yesterday.
The Water rates can be paid by stable rent.
So glad you got a chance to get your coat fixed. Hope you left tailor to pay expenses. With much love dearie.
Your loving mother,
[P.S.] Please enclose in next letter some of the small rubber bands. We want them for keeping the cheese cloth over the jugs.
