W1446 TO DR. CALVIN BROOKS MCQUESTEN from his friend Dr. George O. Moody
May 28 1877
To: Dr. Calvin Brooks McQuesten, New York
From: Titusville, Pennsylvania, [U.S.A.]
My dear Mac,
Your favor came to hand a few days ago. In my letter to you when I sent the thermometer--It stated that I had enclosed .50 to pay repairs but I probably forgot to enclose it when I got to the office. As I heard nothing from you I concluded the thermometer never reached you as was the case with--the letter containing the $2.00 sent sometime in Feby. The thermometer never has been received by me and probably some rascal in the office here or somewhere else opened thinking it contained something valuable. I am sorry because it was the best instrument I have ever used. I cannot get another at present but must make the one I have answer for a few months although it is not as accurate as the one lost.
I cannot tell positively where I shall go this summer. I think now that I shall go to Chicago one wk. from to day to attend the American Medical Association. I am a delegate and it will give me a membership of the association and a good opportunity to see something of the west which I have never visited. Dr. Barr is also a delegate and I think we will both go. Barr will go anyway. If I go to C. I shall be compelled to out cut short my visit East. Emma will go to Keeseville [NY] for a visit of 4 or 5 wks., sometime in July and she says I am to come about the 1st of Aug. and spend 2wks with her. We will decide later what to do and when to go. I hope I may meet you some where this summer. Please keep me posted as to your whereabouts.
As Ever Sincerely
Parson [Dr. George O. Moody]
