[Some notes in Rev. Baker's handwriting are transcribed below.]W3220 TO ISAAC B. MCQUESTEN from Henry Hart
Jun 2 1878
To: Isaac B. McQuesten Hamilton, Ontario
From: Paris, Ontario
I.B. McQuesten Esq.
Excuse me writing you on Sabbath but Miss Harriett
Baker has set all our apprehensions about her at rest she was married last evening by our Minister to a brother of the Mr. Hicks who called on Mr. Baker last week no one knew of it even her sister Minnie to the last moment even while she was dressing Minnie asked for what she was dressing & even
then Hattie did not let her into the secret. I do not know what bearing this may have on Mr. Bakers arrangements as to the Children1
I would say that the husband bears a good character and is a respectible [sic] young man
I thought it better to write you rather than Mr. Baker so you might inform him if you deemed it necessary.
He. [Henry] Hart
