W7865 TO REV. CALVIN MCQUESTEN from Grace Johnstone
Jan 8 1928
To: Rev. Calvin McQuesten 'Whitehern,' Hamilton, Ontario
From: Niagara Falls, Ontario
Dear Mr. McQuesten,
I fully intended to write you a note at Christmas, and when I neglected doing so resolved to do it at the New Year, and you see I have let a whole week slip by already without doing it.
I hope you had a very pleasant Christmas and I know you were doing your share to bring cheer to the patients at the San. Ever since I left there, I have intended to write to you and commend you on your splendid and self-sacrificing work up there. I doubt if you realize how much good you are doing among those sick ones.
Your beautiful sympathetic prayers lifted me up many a time when I was feeling pretty blue. You have the faculty of interpreting the feelings of sick ones--no doubt because you have suffered yourself--and we can't help feeling that your prayers are answered at the throne of Grace.
I'm sure you will be glad to know that I have made a great deal of progress since I left the San. I go for a walk every day and have quite a few nice drives. You can imagine how I appreciate it after being imprisoned for so long.
I had a letter from Dorothy Fitzpatrick. She seems to have been surfeited with Christmas presents and I was so glad to hear that she had had a good Christmas. I hear from the girls now and then and am always glad to get some news of the San.
Now I sincerely hope that 1928 will be a very happy year for you, and I trust you will be given strength and endurance to carry on your noble work there.
