Niagara Falls, Ontario.
Thank you for your letter of June 30th. I am interested to know of the species of tree about which you write me. It is quite a handsome tree and I was attracted to it because it seemed to be rare. I am also interested to read the letter from Professor Shoemaker. I think it is an excellent thing to keep the School before the authorities in other Provinces.
With kind personal regards,
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.
