W7890 TO REV. CALVIN MCQUESTEN from R. Owen Merriman
May 17 1931
To: Rev. Calvin McQuesten 'Whitehern,' Hamilton, Ontario
From: 'Bewsey,' Mossley Hill, Liverpool, England
Dear Mr. McQuesten,
Ever since I heard from Carl Nunn that you were also journeying to Britain, I seem to have been having letters for you. I hope you heard from me either at home before you left or on shipboard in Montreal or Glasgow, and I hope you will drop me a line giving me your Britain address. I shall be here, with Mrs. Pidduck, (a cousin) until next Thursday, and after May 26 my address will be c/o Bank of Montreal, 9 Waterloo Place, London S.W.
Did you know that I was on the "Duchess of Bedford" when she passed the "Laurentic" at sea? I was tempted to wireless a suggestion that you should swim across to to [sic] us and thus reach England sooner! I hope you saw as many birds as we did,--twelve species of when [sic] ten were new to me. I hope to watch British birds with you before we return to Canada.1
Always yours sincerely,
R. Owen, Merriman
