W7852 TO REV. CALVIN MCQUESTEN from Irene Todd
Sep 17 1920
To: Rev. Calvin Mcquesten 'Whitehern,' Hamilton, Ontario

Dear Mr. McQuesten,

Dora, Jean and I are going to Hamilton tomorrow afternoon and will run over to see you about 4.30 o'clock. We are looking forward so much to seeing that beautiful garden--it does sound such a wonder--spot and I do hope some of the flowers are still in bloom.

Thank you so much for the snaps and also for the proffered vegetables. We certainly couldn't refuse the rose-ribbed Paris Golden celery-it sounds exactly like something one reads about.

And now I must away if you will excuse the brevity of this note--I seem to be constantly on the tear.

Au-revoir until tomorrow,

Sincerely yours,

Irene Todd
