Dogsledding in QuebecW7924 TO REV. CALVIN MCQUESTEN from Henry A. Street
Mar 1 1935
To: Rev. Calvin McQuesten 'Whitehern,' Hamilton, Ontario

Dear Domine,

My skill at taking pictures is not very good and the one I am enclosing by no means does justice to you. I think almost I had better plan to attend the races again next year because I should like a better photo and you also would.

However, as this is the only one taken we will have to make it do for this time. It was a great pleasure to Mrs. Street and myself to have met you and also your charming friend Madame'lle Camille.1 We wish we might have been in position to have extended the acquaintance of you both.

Please accept my humble apologies for a very poor picture of a very fine gentleman and also the hope that our paths cross again some day in the not too distant future.

Very Sincerely Yours,

Henry A. Street.

2 The photograph of the dogsled team which appears on this page was included "for effect" but is not actually the picture that Mr. Street had sent to Calvin. That particular photograph does not appear on this website.
