Niagara Falls, Ontario.

Dear Matt:-

I wrote you yesterday about giving a Show at St. Johns Church, Hamilton.2 Last night one of the ladies called me up and stated the date as given to you was not satisfactory, and asking if it could be changed to Thursday the 4th day of May at the same hour. Will you let me know if this suits you?

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 986.1.090 but has been renumbered for cataloguing purposes.

For more information on T.B. McQuesten, go to the Home Page, click on Family and then click on his photo.

For other persons mentioned in the letters or for various plants and trees, search by name.
