Box 12-490 TO THOMAS B. MCQUESTEN from William Murray
Dec 7 1910
To: Thomas Baker McQuesten
From: 'Athol Bank' Hamilton, Ontario

My dear Examiner

As I am not certain of his address, perhaps you would kindly forward the enclosed little lilt1 to your brother Calvin first time you are writing him-- Qrious [sic] that both you & he should be leaping aloft so high at the same moment!

You needn't, of course, reply to this: that late lustrous letter of yours will last me the rest of my life.

Yours sincerely

Wm. Murray

P.S. I had the pleasure of seeing your sister Ruby this forenoon. She was as merry as a mavis and both her face and the smiles thereon would bear the closest "examination."


1 Box 12-491 was enclosed with this letter and addressed to Calvin.
