NIAGARA PARKS COMMISSION
Hamilton, December 14th, 1943.
Mr. M. Broman,1,2
Niagara Parks Commission,
Niagara Falls, Ont.
I have written letters to Ernest Van Slyke and Colwyn Greenwood. Do not bother answering this letter, but I have in my mind that Van Slyke was the little fellow you had a good opinion of. I would like you to keep track of these good lads that pass through your hands. We cannot give them any guarantee but we may have an opportunity in the future to get in touch with them and bring them along. In any event keep track of their whereabouts.
With kind personal regards, believe me,
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.
