Box 12-614 TO REV. CALVIN MCQUESTEN, B.A. from his mother, Mary Baker McQuesten
May 17 1910
To: Calvin McQuesten Glenhurst, Saskatchewan
From: 'Whitehern'

Dearest Cal.,

Thought perhaps a letter posted to-day might catch your mail at week end, so am enclosing Hilda's card, which says R. was feeling fine yesterday morning. So I trust she is taking a new lease of [sic] life. The weather is lovely now. Mary in great spirits, as the military memorial service takes place up at Harvey Park at 10 a.m with minute guns &c. and she will be off when breakfast is over. Your letter to Mary speaks of receiving hers & Tom's & R.'s. Did you not receive mine or the Presbyterian which I ordered for you for six months? Let me know when to post my letters. With much love.

Your mother

[M.B. McQuesten]

1 Enclosed was Box 12-617, a postcard from Hilda to her mother.
