W9862y TO MATT BROMAN from Tom McQuesten's sister, Mary Baldwin McQuesten
Apr 18 1942
To: Matt Broman, Niagara Falls, Ontario.
From: Mary Baldwin McQuesten Whitehern
April 18th 1942
Dear Mr. Broman1,2
Very many thanks for your kindness. I never saw any finer daffodils than those you sent and of as my brother told me they were raised from poor small buds, you are certainly a magician with flowers. The lettuce and eggs [??] too much appreciated, you remember last July when you brought my lily bulbs back, I was told to plant them and that in the spring you would treat the soil? I do not wish you to make a special trip up to Hamilton [??] if you mind as this [??] perhaps you [??] about them of the [??] up now.
Again thanking you
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.
