[Note at top:] The book of poems is in the [Whitehern] Library (no number)

W8696a TO MARY LEE from Rev. Calvin McQuesten
Sep 19 1960
To: Mary Lee [?]
From: 'Whitehern' Hamilton, Ontario

Dear Mary Lee,

This is the only edition of Drummond's Poems1 that I can get from the publishers. I am much disappointed. I wanted to get you either the volume of his Complete poems, or the Selected poems in that nice limp-leather edition I take to Muskoka. But neither is to be had, only this edition in the cheap paper cover. I am so sorry. But at least it gives you most of his best poems. God bless you, dear girl.
