W7024 TO REV. CALVIN MCQUESTEN, B.A. from his mother, Mary Baker McQuesten
Jun 28 1928
To: Calvin McQuesten Gaspe Quebec
From: 'Whitehern' Hamilton

Dearest Calvin,

Just received your letter from Gaspe. Delighted to hear you are so comfortable, a kind Providence leads you. A city letter came to-day, which I took the liberty of opening to see if it was of any value so I am enclosing it. I have plenty of money to carry me on. You mentioned once, sending you blank cheques. Do you still want them? I think you meant, if I was wanting money.

We are tremendously busy, getting ready for Ladies' Aid Garden Party to-morrow. Weather very promising, garden magnificent, gates mended and painted. Vine around front pillars, very pretty Will enclose cheque with this and send cards etc. by themselves. Tom ventured to take me out himself in the new car yesterday, but needs a little more practice H. took first lesson, Friday not so easy to learn as Ford, but hopes to master it in time Lovely to ride in. Instead of light colours few which have become common, there is a lighter blue--very handsome.

M.B. McQuesten
