Dear Matt: 1,2
I am glad to get the reprints of our article in the C.S.T.A. Review. Any publicity along this line we can get I think is very valuable and it is very credible to yourself.
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.
