To: Rev. Thomas Baker, 3 Bold Street, Hamilton, Ontario,
From: Box 1233 Post Office, Toronto, Ontario,
Dear Mr Baker
Little did I suppose when coursing with you a few evenings ago, when you were as much concerned about Mrs Baker's ill heath that you would so soon be called upon to mourn her loss.
Permit me, Dear Sir, to offer you as far as is possible, my Christian sympathy under your sad bereavement and to expresses the hope that you may experience, very fully, the nearness of One, who is so well, able and willing to sympahize with and support, all who mourn. He whom you have so long known and loved and saved will not forsake you at this trying time. May the lovingly sustain and "abide with" you as long as your journey here shall last and then grant a happy re-union with her who has gone before as well as an eternal rest in His own glorious presence.
My sister, Mrs Marling, fully appreciated the message which you kindly sent to her through me to visit me in sincere sympathy for you under your present [second??] affliction.
Yours very sincerely
P.S. Will you Kindly say to Mrs McQuesten how much we feel for her in her sad loss.
