W7006 TO THOMAS MCQUESTEN from his mother, Mary Baker McQuesten
Sep 18 1920
To: Thomas McQuesten 'Whitehern'
My dearest Tom
Just a line to say, that tho' we missed you very much to-day, I was far more glad that you took a change to the Falls. It is really no change at all to come down here, and now that the summer evenings are gone it is no pleasure to anyone to be here in the evening so I would far rather not have you come. There is only one Saturday more before we are at home.
Edna is really improving all the time but last Saturday it had been a wet day which made her restless and she could do nothing but play the piano; we do not generally suffer as we did that night.
I am going to Toronto on Tuesday for a meeting and am going to stay overnight with Mrs Ellis, 19 Division St, so as to go to Dr. Capon's the next day.
We have just come up from the Lake, where we chanced to see the finish of a Yacht Race. It seems too provoking that on all the Saturdays you toiled down here you never saw a thing. A perfect sunny afternoon, a fine steam yacht first, then one after another all sails set twelve yachts came in sight, only nine were pretty close together in full view, the other three are trailing; but it was a most beautiful sight; nice warm day, and we took cushions down to sit on. Wish you could take a longer holiday than the weekend. With much love.
Your affectionate mother
