W2248 TO ISAAC BALDWIN MCQUESTEN From his friend William Bickford
Jun 12 1869
To: Isaac Baldwin McQuesten
From: 155 Adelaide St., Toronto, Ontario
My dear Ike-
I have just changed my cheque, and you see, take advantage of this, the first opportunity to return the sum You so kindly loaned me.
Believe me I am very, very much obliged for the favour and trust I may have it in my favour sometime to return the compliment.
Should we never meet again it is my most sincere wish that you will sustain me among your warmest friends, for so, even as now, I shall always regard you.
