Violet Poem – 1910


I tried to pen a greeting, To pledge a friendship true; But the violet is more eloquent, Let it confide my thoughts to you.

Post marked Redford, Mich. Apr 26, 1910.  Addressed to Mr. Lee Weaver, 94 Tireman Ave. Detroit, Michigan.

“Redford, Mich.   Apr. 26, 1910.  Dear Cousin, Isn’t it beautiful rainy weather.  Do you make your first trip Wed.  I take the Examination, at Farmington, next Thurs. and Friday, will be glad when it is over.  Your mamma [Effie Lee Weaver] said you had a cold.  Hope it is better.  Grandma [Esther Jenks Lee] is better.  Uncle Walt [Walter J Sturman]and Aunt Keel [Cornelia Wright Stuman] were down last night.  The men are three games ahead this year.   Write to your cousin.  Estelle [Wright]”

Estelle was going to school in Farmington in 1910.   She would marry, in 1918, Levern Samuel Sturman,  one of Walter’s nephews.   Grandpa Lee was heading off to Cleary Business College.
