Box 12-456 TO REV. CALVIN MCQUESTEN, B.A. from his mother, Mary Baker McQuesten
Oct 22 1910 [approximate date]
To: Calvin McQuesten Glenhurst, Saskatchewan
From: ['Whitehern']

Dear Cal.,

Am just terribly rushed. Saturday is a busy day and we unwisely planned to all take tea at the Cottage, and it has almost been more than I could manage. The new girl is very nice but everything is new to her; but hope sometime to have more rest. Two households to cater for is not any easy thing. I do trust all will go well with you and that you will have a safe journey home. We shall be thinking of and praying for you. R. seems to be keeping very comfortable. With best love.

Your loving mother

M.B. McQuesten

[P.S.] It will be too late to write you after this I suppose.

[Writing on back of envelope]: Edna's letter Lucinda Van Nost, sale.
