W9106 TO REV. CALVIN MCQUESTEN from [?] M. Cornett
Feb 24 1915
To: Rev. Calvin McQuesten 'The Manse' Buckingham, Quebec
From: 150 Wellington Street, St. Thomas, Ontario

Dear Mr. McQuesten,

Your letter was somewhat delayed through being forwarded, but I received it yesterday. There were six tons of coal in the cellar for which we paid seven dollars and a quarter ($7.25) per ton. If you were glad to find it in the cellar, I think I was even more pleased to have a minister coming into the house so soon to take it off my hands. Of course I was also glad for the sake of the congregation.

Will you please remember me to anyone who asks for me? I can assure you that I have a very warm feeling for the Buckingham Congregation. It is quite true that I am going to train as a nurse, but I can't be taken into the hospital until April.

Mr. Cornett is very well. Owing to orders from the war office he wasn't able to get to France with the troops. He and some nineteen other chaplains were left behind, but are planning and hoping to go still.

I am hoping that our furniture in the third flat does not interfere with your plans at all. If at any time, you find that it is inconveniencing you will you please let me know, and other arrangements can be made. This address in St. Thomas will always find me.

Very sincerely yours,

[?] M. Cornett
