W6377 TO REV. CALVIN MCQUESTEN from his sister, Ruby
Mar 25 1909
To: Rev. Calvin McQuesten, [Knox College] Toronto, Ontario
From: 316-15th Ave. West., Calgary Alberta

Dear Cal,

As far as I know my plans are as I said before--I have not heard from the Secretary of the Y.W.C.A. but there is time enough for that yet. As I said I hope to be in Winnipeg by Friday night and down to the station to meet you at noon on Sat. If I shouldn't be there you could phone to the Y.W.C.A. or to that hotel you mentioned. And if you didn't hear of me at either then I would still be on my way & reach Winnipeg at 5:30 p.m. on Sat. evening. But I expect everything will go alright & I'll be down there to meet you, and be sure to wear a smile so I'll know you.1 2

With much love,
