W7453 TO [REV.] CALVIN MCQUESTEN from Georgina Mackenzie
May 1 1904 [approximate date]
To: Calvin McQuesten Toronto, Ontario
From: 1576 King West., [Toronto, Ontario]

Dear Mr. McQuesten,

Some one said they had seen you on the street the other day, so I presume you are still in the city. I've just come home from Pittsburgh and no one at home seems to be able to tell me any thing about anybody. Won't you please come and see me soon? That is if you have not taken your departure for the West.

I was so sorry to be away so long and to miss Knox Convocation this year and I hadn't seen any body to ask questions of since I came home.

Elsie has gone up to Staney Brae to get part of the house cleaning done before Mamma goes.1 I'm to stay in the city, so you see I need cheering up, and besides I have messages from Ned Riggs & Norman for you.

Your sincere friend

Georgina Mackenzie
