Would you make a note for next spring to prepare a little collection of fall chrysanthemums with the new colours and varieties, the cost of which will be charged to me. I want to give them to Mr. Walters who is very anxious to have some new sorts of this flower.

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.
