W7661 TO [REV.] CALVIN MCQUESTEN from Annie Clark
Sep 18 1907
To: Calvin McQuesten Glenhurst, Saskatchewan
From: Box 305, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan
Dear friend, I received your letter a few days ago and you will no doubt have received your expected shock by this time. I am very sorry that I cannot tell you if we could take Nigger1 or not, as you understood Isaac lives twenty-five miles west of here and I cannot say what he thinks for we had given up all hope of ever getting Nigger so we had decided to get a bigger pony.
Father spoke of Nigger in his last letter to Bob, so I am not sure but Father may buy him. I have written to Isaac but you must do what you think best.
Well, I hear you are holding the fort pretty well at Milden. But I don't expect to be back in time to see you this fall, But I hope you will find it convenient to see us, if you are in Saskatoon. I am having a really pleasant time up here. Mr. and Miss Goy who live with us are real nice.
I was to E. League last night for the first time and found a very pleasant and friendly set of people. I have not been to Sabbath School yet but intend to go in the future. I have not seen Tom or Kate since I came out, as they live across the river and I am rather nervous about taking the horse across the ferry.
Oh, by the way wasn't that a dreadful accident at the Horse shoe on the mountains. Did you know any of the killed. I was well acquainted with several of the injured, but I suppose you wouldn't know any of them.
I must close my letter now and go down town and post it, and as the boys are both at work Miss Goy and I hitch Jamie to the buggy and do up the town. So Good bye from,
1 "Nigger" is Calvin's horse, see W7657.
