W6944 TO REV. CALVIN MCQUESTEN, B.A. from his mother, Mary Baker McQuesten
Feb 2 1916 Wednesday
To: Calvin McQuesten 'The Manse' Buckingham Quebec
From: 'Whitehern'

Dearest Calvin,

Hurrah! Miss Smith is coming, but am sorry she cannot get started till Tuesday am sending her fare to her, am writing her to write you, if anything should occur to prevent her coming Tuesday. I offered her $16.00, did not like to say less, but she has some of her own. I am giving her $10.00 to take her down, but that is my treat, it is such a relief to my mind, it is quite worth it. Hope your Annual Meeting came off well, have been busy talking, writing and phoning all morning so must rest now.

Will tell Miss S. if you are not able to meet her at station, she is just to take the bus to the Manse. With much love.

Your affectionate mother

M.B. McQuesten
