I have your letter of July 27th. I do not think the old man is a gardener at all and I shall have to leave it to you as to what you think is worth transplanting. You speak of doing it in the fall. Would it not be better to do it in the spring? However, I leave it to you. I am anxious to enlarge our collection, that is all.
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.
