Dear Mr. Broman:
I am enclosing copy of correspondence which will explain itself. If you have any more of these beans,3 send some to Mr. Foster, who is the Chairman of the Civil Service Commission, Parliament Buildings.
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.
2 This document was originally numbered 986.1.046.1 but has been renumbered for cataloguing purposes.
3 In W9862n, Thomas writes to Broman about the Vineland Experimental station growing these beans and the potential for them to be sent to England as well. See also W9862v.
