[Letter fragment in M.B. McQuesten's handwriting, likely to son, Calvin, and dated by context, Uncle died on February 19, 1912]

Box 12-730 TO [REV. CALVIN MCQUESTEN] from his mother, Mary Baker McQuesten
Mar 30 1912 [approximate date]
To: [Calvin McQuesten] [?]
From: 'Whitehern'

[Dear Calvin]

We have to have Uncle's flat cleaned by Tuesday. Our great difficulty is the portrait. I want to try it at the back of our hall. Tom wants to have it crated and out of sight, but I do not want any useless things put there in the cellar. Hill the mover does not wish to undertake the moving, but Thomson will do any thing we wish. We are bringing every thing here to keep for your use. Every one is tickled to think Mr. Mitchel refused St. John's. Suppose you saw Mr. M. of London was called by them.

[M.B. McQuesten]
