W5824 TO THOMAS MCQUESTEN from his mother, Mary Baker McQuesten
Apr 25 1907 Thursday Night [approximate date]
To: Thomas B. McQuesten [Toronto]
From: 'Whitehern'

My dear Tom,

Just a few lines to let you know how we are getting along. We are all ready to be moved to-morrow. Hill the mover to be here at 7 a.m. fancy poor us. Then at night we go to our various friends. I am having my own times with furnace men, carpenters and Ross the painter re Mrs. Hills house, for as my increased rent begins when improvements are finished, am trying to get them done by end of May.

These are strenuous days with you also, I expect. I do trust the exams have not been too hard, and that you are keeping up. Glad to know Cal is feeling well and heard from H. M. Com. May God bless and keep you both my dear boys.

Your loving mother

M.B. McQuesten

[P.S.] You will come to Oakville on Saturday of next week will you not?
