Enclosed is copy of a letter to me from a friend of mine, C.W. Reynolds, a chemist in Hamilton, together with a copy of a letter from him to the Department of Agriculture in Toronto. These will explain themselves. I should be very grateful to you if you could give me a full report on this request. I am not myself familiar with the product which is derived from this plant, but you may be. In the meantime perhaps you would let me have the full description asked for in the original letter to the Department of Agriculture and any other information which occurs to you.
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.
