W8697 TO REV. CALVIN MCQUESTEN from his brother Thomas Baker McQuesten
May 1 1912
To: Rev. Calvin McQuesten Bracebridge, Ontario

My dear Cal,

I'm a day too late to reach you, but very many happy returns, all the same. By your next birthday you'll be a staid householder. I hope you like it as your letters show. A couple of weeks ago there was a sale at Britnell's in Toronto. There were great bargains, I got quite a few unframed pictures. I shall look them over and see if there are any suitable and let you have it as a belated birthday present.

The garden is just beginning to get under way. In a few weeks it will be at its best. I have at last succeeded in getting all my stuff in. It's a tedious business.

Yesterday had to go to Waterdown on business. The country is beginning to look beautiful. There is a new line of railroad, the Guelph branch of the C.P.R. running right through the town now. Excuse this brief note. Again, wishing you very many happy returns.

Your affte bro.

T.B. McQuesten
