To: Mary-Jane McIlwaine [Baker McQuesten]
From: Newmarket, Ontario

Dear Mary

It affords me great pleasure to send you the accompanying [??], which you so well earned by your excellent scholarship, and [uniform??] good conduct. I am only sorry for the delay which has taken place in sending it and which I fear will somewhat diminish the pleasure usually experienced at the receipt of a prize so diligently worked for.

Believe me Ever
Your sincere friend
