W6006 TO [REV.] CALVIN MCQUESTEN from his mother, Mary Baker McQuesten
Dec 12 1907 Thursday [approximate date]
To: Calvin McQuesten Toronto Ontario
From: Oakville

My dear Cal,

Have just received your card. When you can get those books so reasonably one feels tempted to get both, although I have about determined to give Mr. Chisholm, ["]The Prophet of Babylon["]. Think you had better get a copy of each, with the "Call of the Deep" (I think that is name of Bullen's book) for B.S. and Van Dyke's for Uncle. We were very sorry about Mrs. Mckenzie. If they have a copy now of "Great Books" as &c get it. In haste with much love.

Your mother

M.B. McQuesten
