Box 12-199 TO REV. CALVIN MCQUESTEN, B.A. from his mother, Mary Baker McQuesten
May 31 1912 [approximate date]
To: Calvin McQuesten Bracebridge, Ontario
From: 'Whitehern' Hamilton

Dearest Calvin,

Have really only time for a few words. You will really have to see Gentle about keys yourself when you come. I can do no more. Glad to hear everything looked so well Hilda thought the Manse charming. Do be careful of the horse you are getting and be sure too if it will pay to have one. Very glad to hear you are coming down. Would our boat ticket be any use to you? Two boats running now, last one leaves Toronto at 6 p.m. and leaves here at 8 a.m. With much love.

Your loving mother

M.B. McQuesten

[P.S.] Let us know if we are to send boat ticket. H. will use it Wednesday & then post it. Ask your druggist if he keeps the enclosed preparation if iron, if so he would be able to put up Edna's prescription when she needed cannot read it myself. If he does not, ask. what preparation he keeps & I can tell the doctor.

[Written on back of envelope] Prescription.
