Box 03-093 TO REV. CALVIN MCQUESTEN from N. Campbell, Clk.
Dec 17 1914
To: Rev. Calvin McQuesten 41 Jackson St. West, Hamilton, Ontario
From: 'The Manse' [Postmark, North Bay]

Dear Mr. McQuesten,

You will find herewith a Certificate transferring you to Ottawa Presbytery. I was indeed, pleased to note your Call to Buckingham (Palace)? And Congratulate you on the Call. We have had many Changes here since you left us, we introduced 3 new men last Presbtery & we want to introduce a 4th but he wasn't at Presbytery meeting.

There is great restlessness in the Church but some of us who are old Stagers, are too Old to be Called. Dr. McLeod is holding his own. McKeracher is Called to Waterloo, so that will be another vacancy. Trusting you will have much pleasure and encouragement in your new field & with all the greeting of the festive season.

Most Sincerely Yours

N. Campbell, Clk.
