Dear Matt:-

Last summer when you were in Dundas with the Niagara Falls picture I was rash enough to promise Mrs. Brown that we would show the picture at her house to the North Wentworth Women's Institite. She has now written to know if this can be shown at three o'clock on Wednesday, November 1st. The house is on the Dundas Highway not far from Campbells Corners which is the Galt intersection. Can I trespass again upon your kindness? In any event will you let me know if this date will suit?

With kind personal regards, believe me,
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 986.1.099 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.
