The Rev. Thos. Baker,
My dear Sir;

Yours of the 1st, with enclosed P.O., I have duly received, and shall dispose of the money as you wish. Pray accept my thanks for your generous gifts, and also my congratulations that you are in such wonderful health and vigour. May the good master whom you have so long served keep you strong to the end.

I am thankful to tell you that my health continues good; my work this sefsion [sic], owing to the opening of Women's clafses [sic] in McGill, has been heavier than ever before. After xmas I am to have an afsistant [sic], and then I shall "ease off" a little. You will be glad to hear that all goes on well at the Cong'. College and that the building is admirably fitted for such work. We have 18 students in it.

I am glad Mr. Hall called to see you;- a pleasure I hope to enjoy myself, if all be well, next June, when the Union meets in Hamilton, I shall not forget your kind mefsage [sic] to Mr. & Mrs. Hague.

Mrs. Cornish unites with myself in all kindly greetings.

I remain,
Yours Sincerely,

George Cornish.
