W8958 TO REV. CALVIN MCQUESTEN From Helen E. Mullin
Dec 30 1911
To: Rev. Calvin McQuesten
From: 670 Cathedral Street

M.H.M. [Ingrained on letter, in script]
607 Cathedral St.
Dec 30-11

Dear Cally-1

I was indeed overwhelmed to receive such a beautiful calendar [sic] Xmas day; it is one of the prettiest I have ever seen & the only one that came my way. Thank you very much for the remembrance. Are you wondering if those initials at the top mean that I have changed my name? I haven't. The ingrainer very kindly got my [??] mixed up with some one else's & I got a whole pound of paper marked M.H.M. Of course they rectified their blunder & ingrained another pound with the right initials but just now I am reduced to the wrong kind so have to imagine it's a nom de plume- or something of the kind.

I hope you had a very pleasant Christmas. My celebration threatened to be a dismal one, for I was quite worried about Mother for a time. However the boys kept me well posted, & she seemed to recover remarkably rapidly- for a lady of 70--I daren't call her old lady, was very nearly doing it.

Please give my love to your dear Mother & wishing you a very prosperous & Happy New Year.

Very cordially yours
Helen E. Mullin2
