W7050 TO REV. CALVIN MCQUESTEN, B.A. from his mother, Mary Baker McQuesten
Jul 27 1928
To: Calvin McQuesten Perce Quebec
From: 'Whitehern' Hamilton

Dearest Calvin,

Your letter re [sic] cheque has just come. I remember it distinctly because I was impressed that Souter had inclosed [sic] with it his advertisement, not a large affair, then I noticed it was only for $41.66 and signed by T.S. Minis. If I had not particularly noticed Souter's enclosure of his business advertisement I would not be so sure, as my head gets confused with the many things. We are all so glad you are having such a profitable holiday as well as delightful and can take another month and if these slow payers fail to send cheques be sure and let me know. We had a lovely tea party yesterday with Miss Craig, Mrs. Campbell late of Abbotsford B.C. now of Ottawa. Aunt of Mrs. Otter and her sister Mrs. Stewart, Toronto's Mrs. Ostler, they enjoyed themselves very much and admired the [sic] which is kept in greatest perfection. Must close now, with much love.

Your affectionate Mother

M.B. McQuesten
