Box 12-190 TO REV. CALVIN MCQUESTEN B.A. from his sister Edna McQuesten
Apr 29 1912 [approximate date]
To: Calvin McQuesten Bracebridge, Ontario
From: 'Whitehern'

My dear Cal., Mama says to ask the price of the white and gold tea-set up in Bracebridge as it might be as well to get it up there. The finest of Alice's cats has been crushed in some way and Alice is much distressed. We had a Miss Campbell for dinner and tea yesterday, a Zenanah missionary from India. Her parents Rev. & Mrs. Campbell are among the oldest missionaries in Formosa. She showed us a group in which were Jean MacKay and husband, Mr. Jack, and Dr. and Mrs. Ferguson. It was very interesting, such a clear photograph. We received this to-day and as it looked like a check am enclosing it so that it won't be lost.

Your affec. sister
