Delightful time I have. Nearly three hundred [??] the [Frank?] River Lumber mill and Jamie is most entertaining- I snapped a [?] driving a mill cart (there was [numbers?] in the mill [?] I mean) but I'm afraid the picture will be a failure as it drizzled rain the house at New Westminister shore we were entertained at tea belonged to a Mrs McQuesten so he turned out to be one of the Miss Mackinnons of Caledonia and she stayed so much at Grandpas house. Family [?] people turn up. Well my dear before Mamma is writing too and will tell all the other news. Must close with love. I am eating well
Mary B. McQuesten
