W1387 TO DR. CALVIN BROOKS MCQUESTEN from I.B. [Bessie] Lataille
Jun 18 1873
To: Dr. Calvin Brooks McQuesten
From: New York City, New York

Dear Sir,

I should be very glad to see you again soon if it was possible, but I do not know when shall be able to pay you a visit because am leaving this house on Saturday next, and till that day I have a great deal to do.

Nevertheless, I should be very happy if I could receive a few words from you, on purpose to make another arrangement about a new meeting. Yet, in any case I shall be quite free this week, and can receive or see you or say where, for I do not think it is most reasonable to go to your own dwelling?

Votre Amie sincere.

I.B. Lataille

P.S. I would like to see you before Sunday next but do not forget that I am about to leave the college and in such a case you must make haste to send your expected answer.

I remain yours I.B.L.
