In care of (c/o)
To: Calvin McQuesten Knox College Toronto Ontario
As Ruby's card on Wednesday had nothing about herself I waited till this morning expecting a letter, but only a card came. I fancy she is getting so much fresh air in that room that she cannot very well write more than a card. On Tuesday had my Auxiliary, where I received much congratulations on your efforts, in fact we both need to pray for humility. Mrs. Haslett prayed for us both most fervently, told me she was always very fond of you. Altogether the excitement of weeks which culminated that day gave me a nervous or liver chill on Tuesday night but I just took calomel pill and am alright now.
It was very provoking about the underwear. Expect Nellie James on 24th. Do not yet know how she is coming, by boat or train. Mrs. Irving was out at the Auxiliary and at Mrs. Thomson's Thursday. Met her downtown yesterday so she is getting on. No news at all. With much love from all.
Your loving mother
