W7294 TO [REV.] CALVIN MCQUESTEN from G. Rockcliffe Knight
May 29 1901
To: Calvin McQuesten Toronto, Ontario
From: 4 Orde Street., Toronto, Ontario

Dear Mr. McQuesten

We found our "private park" not all that we expected so did not settle there or you would have received an invitation before this. So come and pitch your tent.

I have tried several times to get you by telephone, to let you know our change of address -- but the line was always busy, so I gave it up; we are playing quite a game of "Post Office."

How well you ride the bicycle, I scarcely recognized you the other day. Speeding along the Avenue. Hope you will come and see us sometime, of course there is not any use I know of inviting Tom. Kind regards.


G. Rockcliffe Knight
