W6008 TO [REV.] CALVIN MCQUESTEN from his mother, Mary Baker McQuesten
Dec 18 1907
To: Calvin McQuesten Toronto, Ontario
From: Oakville

Dear Cal,

Am enclosing a prescription which I thought you might get at Mr. Jeffrey's, if not do not trouble going down to Wood's as I can write them as you may be short of time. You know, I think, Wood is dear. Will enclose a dollar, which will help also with the scent. As to that Ruby's bottle was large, it might cost too much to fill it except that we could give it to R. & H. both. Am writing in a hurry, send me a card if you need more money, as I have not forgotten about the Elk South, or perhaps young Jeffrey would trust you. Was wondering how you got on in the blizzard I hear you were preaching. With much love.

Your mother

M.B. McQuesten

[P.S.] Have written a card last night to Tom saying to get leave for day after Xmas as Mr. C.[Chisholm] says he should see the house, when the Club leaves it.
