W7157 TO REV. CALVIN MCQUESTEN from Gerald Hobbes
Jun 26 1936
To: 'Whitehern,' 41 Jackson W., Hamilton, Ontario
Rev. Calvin McQuesten
Following our conversation of today and in further reference to our letter of June 25th we beg to quote hereunder the price requested on a marker with a stone base similar to those already in the plot. Our price to duplicate this would be $48.00.
In connection with the inscription we have measured the space under the Calvin McQuesten lettering and find there is space for two lines as follows:
CALVIN & MARGARETTE MCQUESTEN1
The other inscription should read as follows:
Oct. 23, 1885 - Nov. 10, 1935
These two inscriptions total 64 letters and the charge at 30 cents a letter would amount to $19.20.
We are returning herewith the previous letter for your records.
Yours very truly,
The Middleton Marble & Granite Company Limited
