1869 Letters

September 1869 letter to Sarah Keith from Kate Crawford

September 1869

To: Sarah Keith

From: Kate Crawford, Chicago, IL

Enjoyed her visit with Sarah very much, also with Mary and at Henry’s. Since she got home she has been canning peaches and making catsup. Would like to know if Sarah can send them a crock of butter for winter. It is so hard to get good butter. They will pay market price and the expense of shipping it. Would also like her to ship her shawl and to look for an earring she lost.
