Box 12-617 TO MARY BAKER MCQUESTEN from her daughter Hilda McQuesten
May 14 1910
To: Mary Baker McQuesten Whitehern Hamilton, Ontario
From: Gravenhurst

My Darling Mother,

Monday 8 a.m. lovely warm morning. R. feeling fine. The Narcissus arrived and were lovely and fresh, such a treat to have a sniff of them. On R.'s window sill she has a bunch of trilliums (nothing like Hamilton ones) very small, the green bowl with violets and a handsome! Toothbrush vase for the narcissi. She enjoyed the asparagus very much, you must not share yourselves out. To-day the grocer sent some spinach over, R. likes it and we seem able to get things very well. Much warmer to-night fancy we shall have warmer weather. The mosquitoes are commencing hope they won't be too bad am going to make a thing to go over R.'s bed, the rest of cottage has screens. What a lot of work you are getting done. Be careful. R. sends love and will write soon as weather permits. [?] [?] to all. H.B.MCQ. [Hilda]
