Miss Mary Baldwin McQuesten,
Dear Miss McQuesten:-
It is a great pleasure to send with your Chair and a few things which we grow ourselves, to show you what we are doing.
I can assure you the boys get plenty of strawberries, strawberry short-cake, and what not, [??] feed them very well with everything from our garden.
The orchids were picked at Whitefish Falls, on a little island out in the lake and they are very easy to grow,
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.
