Dear Mademoiselle

The cow came on Saturday and is a very good one she gives twelve quarts a day and has a tail about one foot and a half and is all brown.

Mrs. Graham's baby is dead and is only two days old.

Alice to our great joy made some soda biscuits that were fit to eat and made a good lot of them. We are having a fine time at home. I hope you are quite well we are quite well. Mrs. Henderson will only take one quart of milk. Miss Darby is at Miss Hopes and Mrs. Malloch is at home. We went out to Bay View on Saturday and had fine fun. The whole family sends you kisses, Edna is a cheeky little scoundrel.

I remain, Your loving son
T. B. McQuesten
