Box 04-024 TO REV. CALVIN MCQUESTEN from Rev. Callum Thompson
Mar 14 1952 [approximate date]1
To: Rev. Calvin McQuesten ['Whitehern,' Hamilton, Ontario]

Dear Calvin,

Good stuff--Recommend sending M.S.S. to Chaplain-in-chief, U.S. Army for a publication job to be done for U.S. service personnel. Failing that his criticism, and possible letter of commendation, might induce some civilian publishers to publish a cheap edition slanted at the soldier trades. This could be start for a second edition better bound, etc. for civilian trade.

However, if you slant it for soldiers don't make it too scholarly--you write well--it is an exciting and interesting work.

Ever Sincerely

Callum Thompson

1 Dated by reference to letter Box 04-022, November 24, 1951, in which Calvin asks "Jeff" to pass on the MSS to Callum Thompson in Dundas.
