W7439 TO [REV.] CALVIN MCQUESTEN from Rev. Charles W. Gordon
Sep 21 1903
To: Calvin McQuesten Hamilton, Ontario1

Calvin McQuesten, Esq.,
My dear Mr. McQuesten,

I am very sorry to hear of your threatened breakdown, and wish to offer you my earnest sympathy in your trouble.

I am not sure whether you would like our work, or whether you would be fitted for it, or whether it would be the thing that would be best for you, but on the whole I feel like recommending you to try it. With this thought in my mind I shall give your name to our Committee here, and I think there is reasonable ground to hope that you may be appointed to a mission field in the west. Our Superintendent of Missions is Rev. Dr. Carmichael, 345 Ellice Ave., Winnipeg. He will write you upon this matter.

With very kind regards, and wishing you complete recovery and a congenial sphere of labor, I am,

Yours very truly,

Charles W. Gordon2

[P.S.] Kind regards to your mother & your family C.W.G.

1 This letter was forwarded to Calvin by his mother (in Hamilton) in her letter of September 26, 1903 (W5119). Calvin may have already left Montreal, and he may have been in Toronto.

2 For Charles W. Gordon (Charles Connor), see W5359.
