From: T.B. McQuesten

[ONTARIO CREST - shield and animals]
Office of the Minister of Highways

Toronto, April 8, 1938.

M. Broman, Esq.
1,2 Niagara Parks Commission,
Niagara Falls, Ontario.

Dear Mr. Broman:

Will you please send someone up to my garden, 41 Jackson Street west, to trim the trees and bushes. I have a number of fruit trees against the walls which were not trimmed last year and I am afraid to let them go another year. Please see that this is charged to my account and forward it to me here. 1

Yours truly,

T.B. McQuesten

1 This letter is an example of T.B. McQuesten's scrupulous adherence to ethics in business.

Matt Broman worked very closely with Thomas B. McQuesten on many of his projects in Hamilton and in Niagara. There is a plaque commemorating Matt Broman's work at the RBG near the Thomas B. McQuesten High Level Bridge. There is also a small lookout park named after him on the brow overlooking King's Forest Park in Hamilton. The series of letters beginning with "986" are all the "Broman" letters.
