W2489 TO DR. CALVIN BROOKS MCQUESTEN from his brother Isaac McQuesten
Jun 8 1877
To: Dr. Calvin Brooks McQuesten New York
From: Hamilton, Ontario

Very dear Brother,

Yours received. Was very sorry to hear of death of Mrs. Ackerman, as she was a kind friend of yours. I send you cheque for $310, as, from what you said that will probably cover what you require. Will bring funds enough for all of us to have a good trip. We will expect to meet you at Manchester [N.H.] next Friday or Saturday. Have you written John? If not you had better write him a note & write him and say that we are going, & clear whether you would meet us there. It seemed a little cool to tell him we have arranged the whole matter without consulting him at all. Should you want to drop me a line upon receipt of this, send it to N. Lawrence Hall, Montreal. We will get there Sunday might stay a day; and go down Lake Champlain & George.1 We are all first rate, & hope you are keeping so. Expecting to see you soon, as ever yours.

I.B. McQ.

[Isaac B. McQuesten]

1 It is not known if Isaac was taking this trip with his wife, Mary. In June, 1877, she was five months pregnant with their third child.
