Niagara Falls, Ontario
I am in receipt of the two copies of C.S.T.A.3 Review with your article, which I have read and which I find very interesting and constructive. It is an excellent summing up of the history and the objects of the School and I think you are to be congratulated in taking advantage of the opportunity from time to time to bring this work before the public as you have done in this Review
I regret that I am not able to do more in this line, but with my other duties I find I have not as much time on my hands as I could wish. I am sorry not to have seen you recently. I have not been over for some time, but when the House [of Parliament] rises I hope to have an opportunity.
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
For other persons mentioned in the letters or for various plants and trees, search by name.
