W8994 TO REV. CALVIN MCQUESTEN from Wm. Tyrrell
Jan 19 1911
To: Rev. Calvin McQuesten 449 Ninth Street Edmonton, Alberta
From: Toronto, Ontario

Dear Mr. McQuesten,

It was very kind of you to write me so considerately about the books, which I sent by your instructions, to your Mother. I quite share your feeling of delight regarding "Rackham's Illustrations" but all the same there is no occasion at all for you to feel under any obligation to take the "Grimn's Fairy Tales." Of course if you really want it, I won't say no, and you can let me know your wishes regarding this and "A Midsummer Night's Dream" later on. The price of the latter is $5.00.

I am sorry to say that there has been some little, but unavoidable, delay in getting one or two books which your Mother wished us to send as substitutes and I won't send your bill until the matter is settled satisfactorily.

Yours sincerely,

Wm. Tyrrell
