1860 Letters

April 17, 1860 letter to Sarah Keith from Platt & Nancy Betts

April 17, 1860

To: Sarah Keith, Galesburg, MI

From: Platt & Nancy Betts, Omro, WI

Want to know if Sarah is coming for a visit. Nancy had a bad cold but took Jane’s medicine and is better. David was there for New Years. Henry wrote them a while back saying he was thinking of moving to Niles. Edwin wrote that (Henry?) had already moved. Edwin has a new son. Thanked them for the likenesses (pictures). Robert’s family returned from the woods. Aunt Mary came for a visit, then went to Robert’s. Next she’ll go to Oshkosh and then to her daughter’s in St. Louis. Rev. Betts preaches in the neighborhood every Sabbath.
