I was not sure about the destination of the brown beans which you sent to England, but I had in mind that it was Fairbridge. I intended to read the correspondence but up to now I have not had an opportunity. It is for this reason that I am enclosing to you a clipping from the British Weekly 3which I read, giving an account of the rise and development of the Fairbridge Farms. If it happens that this is not the school with which you are corresponding, you might be interested in any event to read of this development.
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.
2 This document was originally numbered 986.1.058.1 but has been renumbered for cataloguing purposes.
3 The clipping is rather lengthy and follows in W9863k.
