Box 12-622 TO MARY BAKER MCQUESTEN from her daughter Hilda McQuesten
May 30 1910
To: Mary Baker McQuesten 'Whitehern' Hamilton, Ontario
From: Gravenhurst [Ontario]

My dearest Mother,

Always forget to tell you in my letters that R. has been taking warm milk for the last little while with her meals, etc. Carrie was over at Mrs. Graham's to-day and Mrs. Graham has kindly offered us her machine for the summer as she is unable to use it owing to rheumatism. The next thing we will be 'fishing' for is an ironing board, we have something that does pretty well though.

Ruby has just told me that she has an acct. at the druggist for about $3.00, also her dentist bill but has not got a bill yet. With much love to all.

Hilda B. McQuesten
