W6458 TO REV. CALVIN MCQUESTEN from his mother, Mary Baker McQuesten
Jun 19 1909 Saturday
To: Calvin McQuesten Glenhurst Saskatchewan
From: 'Whitehern'

My dearest Calvin,

I can only write you a few lines to-day as we have just heard from Maggie White, that she is coming up this afternoon to see us . Her aunt from Scotland is a delegate to this Great Women's Council and they are coming here to-day as Mrs. Lauford's guests and Maggie is coming to see us. So I want to get things in order. Received yours with an enclosure on Wednesday and took it right down to Booker and he promised to send me his bill but has never done it yet, I do not think he makes any suits now under $30 and then you had some clothes altered. Tom came home last night and started to the office this morning, think it will be quite a change to settle to regular work; has had a lazy time of it up North. Very glad to hear all about your various charges. Had very cool weather but was warmer to-day. With much love from all.

Your Loving Mother

M.B. McQuesten
