W-MCP6-1.397 TO THOMAS B. MCQUESTEN from his mother Mary Baker McQuesten
Jul 28 1910 [date estimated] Thursday morning
To: Thomas B. McQuesten Whitehern. Hamilton, Ontario
From: [Gravenhurst, Ontario] 1
Posted a letter to you yesterday. Nothing more unless you have time to get me a 15 cent onion skin pad of paper at Mills.2
Remember your nightgown, tooth brush, shaving apparatus and any dirty clothes you like. 3
Your friends have dined you very well. Thanks for money.
With much love,
1 Mary and the girls (Mary, Hilda, Edna) were staying with Ruby while she was being treated for Tuberculosis at Gravenhurst. For more information on Ruby's illness, Consumption (tuberculosis), see W6135, and for Ruby's biographical sketch, click on "Family" on the Home Page, and then on her picture.
2 This onion skin paper has caused us no end of trouble in transcription as Mary wrote many letters using both sides and the ink has bled through.
3 Tom was planning to visit Ruby and his family at Gravenhurst for his holidays, which he did in early August 1910, see Box 12-405.
