Violets – 1910


There are no flowers grown in the vale Kiss’d by the dew, woo’d by the gale. None by the dew of twilight wet. So sweet as the deep-blue VIOLET.   Series No 68.

Post marked Redford, Mich.  Feb 3, 1910.  Addressed to Mrs. Effie L. Weaver, 94 Tireman Ave., Detroit, Mich.

“Dear Sister Effie, Ma [Esther Jenks Lee] said you were coming out Saturday please bring out the silk that was left from your black waist.  Myra [Hannah Almira Lee Churches] has made hers.  Ora [Ora Lee Churches] has made hers and I have made mine but Myra and I need a belt and we have nothing to make them of.  So, you must furnish us silk for one please don’t forget them as Myra needs her belt badly.  All is well, not very nice weather today.  Yours in a bustle.  Ettie [Maritetta Lee Wright]

Effie, Myra, Ora, and Ettie were the four Lee sisters.
