W-MCP1-3a.002 TO [REV.] MR. CALVIN MCQUESTEN from Collin Fletcher
Aug 11 1892
To: Cor[ner] M-Nab & Jackson St., Hamilton, Ont.
From: Exeter

Dear Calvin

The country air is most invigorating today. Bundle up and come right along. I think the present quiet about the Manse here is a little oppressive on Mr. Fletcher, some Hamiltonians needed to break up the monotony. the lot falls upon you, and I may add sub rosa1 that the corn is ready. Start on Monday if convenient, I will meet you that day (15th) in Exeter. Kind regards in which Mrs. Fletcher joins to your good mother and all the others.

Expecting you on Monday

Collin Fletcher
