Box 12-658 TO REV. CALVIN MCQUESTEN, B.A. from his mother, Mary Baker McQuesten
May 23 1913
To: Calvin McQuesten 'The Manse' Bracebridge, Ontario
From: 'Whitehern' Hamilton

Dear Calvin,

Received your letter this morning. Do not worry at all about your house, Mary can quite well go up and fix things up. She could go up next week, but as you would be coming down the following week to Conference we thought it better for her to go after that and then she could stay longer with you and take her time. It seems too bad that Mr. H. had financial [sic] for I am much afraid you suffered in the table [sic]. The Conference programme is very disappointing, see no mention of Dr. Jowett or any other names at all interesting to me. I am quite anxious to hear how our meeting passed off last night, but I cannot delay writing, as I want this to reach you to-morrow so must close dearie.

Your loving mother

M. B. McQuesten
