W8734a TO REV. CALVIN MCQUESTEN from H. May Peregrine
Sep 28 1912
To: Rev. Calvin McQuesten Bracebridge, Ontario
From: Huntsville, Ontario

Dear Mr. McQuesten,

In, arranging the program of our Literary Club for the coming season, the committee are desirous of securing your assistance for one evening-January the eighth. They propose having a few selections from Drummond's poetry that evening, and are assured by Mr. Wilson, who has heard you, that you are one of the few who read it admirably.1 Would [you] be so kind as to come, the guest our Club, that evening and favour us with a few selections?

An early reply would oblige, as we are anxious to get our programs out as soon as possible.

Sincerely yours

H. May Peregrine, (Secretary)
