[On European vacation]W-MCP2-3b.036 TO REV. CALVIN MCQUESTEN, B.A. from his mother, Mary Baker McQuesten
Jun 30 1931 [approximate date]
To: Calvin McQuesten
From: 'Whitehern' Hamilton, Ontario
When your letter started at Rome Station came this a.m., I had just closed you a letter with cheque and with Hilda was hurrying out to take Mrs. McMillan (Thos.) and Mrs. Fletcher to see Gage Park roses. So I opened it and hastily wrote a few words. I am afraid I may have given you the impression I could not spare the money but do not miss giving what you need. H. says you wanted an overcoat and if I have not the money it can go from the Office. This time I just made out my cheque and H. took it after lunch to the Bk. of Montreal for the cable with a very agreeable gentleman. Very glad you can get good clothes at such a reasonable price and it is wise to get them when you can.
Very warm and I am tired after the morning's round at Gage Park and McMaster but am really wonderfully well and do not feel prostrated with the heat as I used to do. Next time I write will have to pay 3cts thanks to Tory Government. Must close now glad you are sleeping well you would need to. Just to think of having a picture taken in the Alps. It seems to be a most successful tour. In haste.
Your loving mother
