1867 Letters

January 3, 1867 letter to Nancy Keith from Nancy Betts

January 3, 1867

To: Nancy Keith, Galesburg, MI

From: Nancy Betts, Waukegan, IL

Nancy Betts is writing a short note to her granddaughter to thank her for the present of edging. She had been suffering from a severe cold, but is feeling better. She is sorry to hear that Elder Sell is moving. She goes on to say that she is going to Omro at the end of the following week, that she had been in Chicago visiting her son, Hiram, and that she had received a letter from her son, David. She also sends directions for some sort of needlework and the colors to use.
