W8812 TO REV. CALVIN MCQUESTEN, B.A. from his mother, Mary Baker McQuesten
May 21 1912 Tuesday
To: Calvin McQuesten 'The Manse' Bracebridge Ontario
From: 'Whitehern'

Dearest Calvin,

The weather is so altogether impossible that my country tour has to be entirely put off. It is really much better for me, I am sure, as I have a good deal on my mind. I am so afraid that the weather will be very bad for you, to get the furniture. It has simply been pouring here since Sunday day & night. Well, Hilda is talking of taking the 7:10 train from here [by?] Georgetown Thursday morning which is said to reach Bracebridge at 1:28; if she does not, she will take the train which leaves Toronto at 1:30, but at present she has determined to go off at 7:10 so as to have as much time with you as possible. We have discovered a walnut table in the cellar, which would do you either for a dining table or for our sitting room, if we decided to let you have ours, so if at any time you can get a good offer for yours, take it at once. With much love.

Your mother

M.B. McQuesten
