Mr. Matt Broman1

Niagara Falls, Ontario

Dear Matt:-

Mr. Britton has spoken to me to know if you could show the reel of Niagara Falls on Tuesday the 28th day of March to a class of about seventy persons in Zion United Church at the corner of Pearl and Napier Streets here around nine o'clock. I can see you on Monday about it, but I thought I should drop you this note so that it will be before you. Mr. Britton said how much he appreciated this picture when you showed it to Murton Lodge. If it is not convenient for you to come I think Mr. Britton could arrange to have someone else show the pictures.

Faithfully yours,
T.B. McQuesten

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. This document was originally numbered 986.1.088 but has been renumbered for cataloguing purposes.

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.
