Box 08-040 TO DODSWORTH & BROWN from Rev. Calvin McQuesten
Nov 15 1965
To: Dodsworth and Brown, Funeral Directors,
From: 'Whitehern' Hamilton, Ontario

Dear Sirs,

As I am now in my 90th, I think I should do something about my funeral. My sister, even if she survives me, knows nothing about my clothes.

I wish to wear the full dress clerical suit hanging in the closet of the South-east bedroom. Please put on the backless cloth vest. The other has a clumsy bit of repairing that makes it look shabby. Clerical Collars are in one of the little drawers in the upper right hand corner of the bureau in my little dressing-room at the head of the stairs. Cuffs are in the round yellow box in the bottom drawer; black socks & underwear are in one of the middle drawers. There is a black shirt at the back on the right hand of the closet; and shoes under the bed.

My executer, W.G. Welby K. C will make arrangements for the service in your chapel, and payments.

God bless you all!

Yours truly,

Calvin McQuesten
