To: Dr. and Mrs. Calvin McQuesten Brockport New York
From: Adams W. Platt Hector New York
After leaving you last spring and returning home I was called away to Saratoga to visit a sick and dying Sister. It was my youngest sister (Mrs. Foster). I found her alive, but she died while I was there. It was a case of Consumption. She manifested a very pleasing degree of Christian resignation and peace.
My father has sold his farm in Saratoga, and will be out into this county this spring if life and health are spared.
We moved to this place in the fall, it is about 20 miles directly south of the place of our former residence, near the banks of the same lake.
We find ourselves very pleasantly situated and with an apparent prospect of usefulnefs [sic].
The state of religion during the winter has been rather interesting. I trust you are prospering in Brockport. I conclude your Minister remains with you, as I have seen no notice of his removal. Remember me to him if convenient-
In hush yours effec't [sic]
Mr. & Mrs. McQuesten.
