W7790 TO [REV.] CALVIN MCQUESTEN from P.B. Beavis
Feb 1 1909
To: Calvin McQuesten Knox College, Toronto, Ontario
From: Outlook, Saskatchewan

Mr. McQuesten,
Dear Mr. McQuesten,

I presume you will soon be returning to Glenhurst. I would like to get a light buggy somewhat like yours for our house and it came to me that perhaps you could get me one at a bargain in Toronto. If I am not asking too much of you will you kindly look around and see what you can do. Also inquire at C.P.R. office what the freight on second hand buggy would be by way of mover fee to Outlook, and new train at the [?]. Let me know what you can get in a buggy at crated ready for shipping and then I can remit the amount to you. We will be glad to see you in the spring-January was the roughest month I ever saw.

Presbytery week in Saskatoon the last Tuesday in Feb. I expect to take the train at Zealandia. Hoping to hear from you, I remain,

Yours truly,

P. B. Beavis
