W7588 TO [REV.] CALVIN MCQUESTEN from Mary E. MacLeod Moore
Oct 4 1906
To: [Rev.] Calvin McQuesten [Standoff, Alberta]
From: 420 W. 20th St., New York, New York

Dear Mr. McQuestin [sic],

I have no idea where you are & if you ever get this. I wrote you about a year ago I think telling you we were going to England. We had a splendid time and didn't get back till May 1st. This is just a line to tell you that I leave N.Y. for Toronto Saturday night, spend Sunday in Rochester & go on to Toronto Monday a.m. I'm not sure what time the train gets in. So if you are still in Toronto I'll be so glad to see you at my uncle's Mr. Thos. Shortiss, 115 George St. I'll be there till the 16th I think when I leave for Brockville to spend the other week before coming back here again.

Mama is well and sends her kind regards. We had a letter from my brother last week and he -- and London -- appear to be flourishing.

Hoping to see you, if you are in Toronto, and with kindest regards.

Sincerely yours,

M. E. Macleod Moore1
