Box 12-361 TO REV. CALVIN MCQUESTEN, B.A. from his mother, Mary Baker McQuesten
Jan 6 1911 Thursday Morning
To: Calvin McQuesten 449-9th. St. Edmonton, Alberta

Dearest Cal.,

As Edna is writing will add a word; was so glad to get your letter of 31st this morning it seems a month between the letters; but I do not blame you for I am sure you are rushed to death. I hope this missionary business will not finish you running off to Calgary &c. When you get time, if you have any left of the snapshots would like one. Please let me know, if you wear any but black ties, I told you Syd Little had sent you, handkerchiefs, socks & black & white ties. You never tell me, if any one speaks of your sermons. By the programme you sent Mr. Murray saw you preached on Xmas morning. I have no one to tell me if your sermons are appreciated. In haste.

Your loving mother

M.B. McQuesten

[P.S] Mary Taylor here. M. will write soon.
