Box 12-786 TO MARY BALDWIN AND HILDA MCQUESTEN from Mrs. Frank Richardson
Apr 29 1960
To: Mary and Hilda McQuesten
From: Beverleigh Orchards, R.R. No.4 Glanford Station, Ontario

Dear Misses McQuesten,

Thank you for your kind donation for the Easter lilies. I cannot say who they were taken too [sic] but it was to someone bed-ridden. We ordered the lilies but [?] to deliver for Easter, so I'm afraid although I thought I left it well organized, the distribution of lilies went wrong.

We didn't have a very good response and we had about 30 names from Mr. Campbell. But if we learn by our mistakes, next year will organize it differently.

We went to a new Lutheran church to see my cousin's baby christened. It certainly was a long service but in spite of pouring rain the church was full to overflowing

Thank you again, Sincerely

Marjolaine Richardson

[Mrs. Frank Richardson]
