W9029 TO REV. CALVIN MCQUESTEN from his friend Marion Robinson
Jun 17 1910
To: Rev. Calvin McQuesten [Glenhurst] [Saskatchewan]
From: 9323 Frank St. Ottawa, Ontario

Dear Mr. Calvin

I feared that the news would be bad when you wrote. All the time I have felt that Ruby was taking too long getting better.1 Perhaps having Hilda and the rest with her may do her good. There is no use saying anything, you know what one feels. It is hard for you to have to go so far away.2

I do not know yet when I'll have many holidays but will stop off at Gravenhurst whenever they come.

Sincerely Yours, Marion Robinson

1 Ruby died on April 9, 1911. At the time of this letter she is still at the Gravenhurst sanatorium, but will soon be moved to the cottage on Hamilton Mountain where she died. See W6135. For more about Ruby see her bio sketch by clicking on "Family" on the Home Page, and then clicking on her picture.

2 At this time Calvin is on his Homestead at Glenhurst Saskatchewan.
