W9861r TO MATT BROMAN from his associate T.B. McQuesten
Apr 11 1940
To: Matt Broman Matt Broman, Niagara Falls, Ontario
From: T.B. McQuesten

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

Toronto, April 11th, 1940.

M.K. Broman Esq.1,2
The Niagara Parks Commission

Dear Matt.,

I have read carefully your article on the Gardeners' School and I think it is very well done. I wondered if it would not be well to print this and give it to visitors who might take it away but it would serve to remind them of the fact that if they wanted a gardener they could find one here. The only criticism I have of the article is that there is no reference to this fact.

If you thougtht it was worth while to print it , would you think it advisable to put in a paragraph to this effect?

Faithfully yours,
T.B. McQuesten

1 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 Broman's.

For more information on T.B. McQuesten see his biography.
