My dear Mr. McQuesten

Yours of the 1st inst. to hand in reference to a visit to your district. My plan for the present is to assist at the opening of the Ch. at Bradwell on the 16th and remain over for the entertainment on the 17th & leave Bradwell on the 18th for Saskatoon to take the 16.50 train on the 19th for Tessier. I suppose I will reach there some time in the evening. Meet the [?] in Tessier on Thursday 20th in Tessier [sic]. Hold a service there in the evening. You can make any use you like of me on Friday. I wish to spend the 23rd in Zealandia, and leave the field by train on Tuesday 25th. On Wednesday (26th) go to Asquith and on Thursday (27th) Wilkie. I am waiting Messrs. Rae, Louis & Bernes.

Yours sincerely,

1 Dr. J. A. Carmichael, was to be present for Calvin's ordination but did not appear and Calvin's mother Mary was annoyed at the "hole in corner sort of style" of his ordination (W6419).
