My own dearest Mary,
It is very sad; but all things are not at our disposal, so as I have to attend the Master's office in Toronto next Wednesday morning in a partition suit; I must come down tomorrow evening; for I'm sure I couldn't do any thing at Court without consulting with my oracle. I will try to be at your house at 6 p.m tomorrow; If however, you have any engagement don't let me take you away from it. I should feel very much annoyed, pet, to think that I spoilt any of your arrangements. It is enough to forever spoil your little show without doing more. I only knew this afternoon, or would have dropped you a note earlier. Received your ear ring. 1
As ever, pet, yours alone
[Isaac Baldwin McQuesten]
