Box 12-644 TO REV. CALVIN MCQUESTEN, B.A. from his mother Mary Baker McQuesten
Jul 22 1924 [approximate date]
To: Calvin McQuesten
From: [England]

[Dear Calvin,]

Thought I would not send letter too soon to Marion Robinson, as it might make them think you were coming right away. Have had fine letters from H. but will not send them whilst you are traveling about, as they might go astray. She is having a glorious time at Chester, Warwick Castle, Shakespeare's County. From letter this morning she is in London at Grand Central Hotel going every where, with scarcely time to breathe. She is not sending cards, too pretty to risk in mail. Sydney sent H. when she was away & we never got one. Very pleasant weather in city & we are enjoying the rest. Seem to have had fine weather, only specks of rain [when] going to Westminster Abbey Sunday afternoon, but had stopped when they came out. Wonderful boys' voices. Kind regards to all the Robinsons.

Your loving mother

[M. B. McQuesten]
