In care of (c/o)
To: Calvin McQuesten Knox College Toronto Ontario
From: 'Whitehern'

Dearest Cal,

Am just enclosing Ruby's letter, as it seems so long since we had any word but a card. When she can take eggs, I think she is gaining.

On Sabbath we had nine preachers from Toronto in the interests of the Bible Society. We had Mr. McPherson of Chalmers Church, he made my ears and head ache and there was not a great deal beside noise, though some people seemed to like him. Tom went with M. and me to Bible Society Annual meeting. Had very good addresses from Mr. Cooper and a Mr. Bowen.

So poor Mrs. McLaren did not live very long after the Professor; it would have been a lonely life, if she had lingered. Well, the bell is ringing for prayer meeting. Hope you are getting on satisfactorily. Heard from Nellie J. [James] to-day that you were there on Sunday and looking well. With much love from all.

Your loving mother

M.B. McQuesten

[P.S.] The latest excitement is the mention of Mr. Chisholm's name for a judgeship.
