Thank you for the card I received to-day re The New York's Food and Life Sciences publication.

Sorry that I was unable to mail the card before July 31, 1968, as we have had a Mail Strike here for 3 weeks.

I would greatly appreciate receiving your useful and interesting publication, as I have had the pleasure of having same before July 31st.

Sincerely yours,

Encl [from Matt Broman]1

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 the "Broman" letters. This document was originally numbered 986.1.108 but has been renumbered for cataloguing purposes

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