W9865l TO MATT BROMAN from his associate, T.B. McQuesten.
Jan 2 1946
To: Matt Broman, Niagara Falls, Ontario.
From: T.B. McQuesten.

69 James Street South

Dear Matt

Thank you for the beautiful smoked turkey which we are preparing to enjoy. It arrived in excellent condition and we shall consume in memory of yourself. You are much too generous in these matters.

I hope this coming year will be a good year for all of us which means of course that we shall have limitless money to spend and freedom from all control. However I am fully hopeful that as you get your feet planted and we are able to increase and improve our staff that our undertakings will begin to take shape and the property will begin to commend itself to the Public, I am grateful to you for all your interest and loyalty. In fact I do not know what we should do without you.

I hope the coming year will be one of the best you have had and that you may be personally happy and your affairs will all prosper. Times are somewhat at a standstill but they will improve, and we shall together work out our hopes.

With kind personal regards, and wishing you the compliments of the season.

I remain, Faithfully yours,
T.B. McQuesten1

1 A copy of this letter occurs at 986.1.104.3.

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 Broman's. This document was originally numbered 986.1.104.2 but has been renumbered for cataloguing purposes.

For more information on T.B. McQuesten see his biography.
