W5453 TO [REV.] CALVIN MCQUESTEN from his mother, Mary Baker McQuesten
May 4 1906 [approximate date]
To: Calvin McQuesten [Likely addressed to Macleod, Alberta]
From: Hamilton

My dear Calvin

I do not know just where to direct my letter, but will write you a few lines. We received your card from Gravenhurst yesterday morning, am glad to know you had company. The ladies on Tuesday presented me with $60 wasn't that generous. I have been working away at my address and have at last got it into shape which is a great relief to my mind. Received a card to-day saying I am to be the guest of Mrs. R.H. Bryce, 372 Assinaboine Ave.,1 So you can write me there till the 17th. To-morrow I hope you will reach Macleod safe and sound. With fond love.

Your loving mother

M.B. McQuesten
