W9862l TO MATT BROMAN from his associate, Mary B. McQuesten
Oct 14 1941
To: Matt Broman
From: Mary B. McQuesten

Whitehern
Hamilton

Oct 14th 1941


Dear Mr. Broman1,2

We tried the apricots for the first time last night and they were perfectly delicious and that reminded me that we had never had any bill from you for them. The matter has probably slipped your mind so this letter will probably remind you. My brother enjoyed the apricots very much indeed. We canned them just as we do peaches as an experiment and were very pleased with the result.

With kindest regards,
Sincerely yours,
Mary 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 part of the Broman collection.

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