My dear Mother

Just a line to you let you know how delighful it was to have Mrs. Palman waltz into the warehouse this morning with the congratulations of the family. He tells me everything is too long beautiful. You really should not have sent me two dollars, for the long fellow with which I am only too glad to present myself, would have been quite enough [??] you it. Moreover I can tell you that I am very grateful to you all for your liberality and shall make good at what remains. I have just been trying Edna's [??????????????- several lines illegible.] commend itself to the Public. I am grateful to your [sic] for all your interest and loyalty. In fact I do not know what we should do without you.

I hope the coming year will be one of the best you have had and that you may be personally happy and your affairs will all prosper. Times are somewhat at a standstill but they will improve, and we shall together work out our hopes.

With kind personal regards, and wishing you the compliments of the season.

I remain,
Faithfully yours,
T.B. McQuesten
