S.S. Roosevelt at Night – 21C
Post marked Chicago, Ill, Jan 6, 1911. Addressed to Mr. Lee Weaver, #94 Tireman Ave. Detroit, Michigan.
“Jan 6 -11. Dear Lee, Why don’t some of you folks write did you get the letter I sent at Christmas. I am in this Windy City tonight. Aunt Christeen [Christiana Weaver Rinehart, Lemuel Weaver’s sister]”
Aunt Teen seems a bit peeved that she has not heard from her brother’s family since Christmas, but then it also appears she is traveling since she lived in Columbus, Ohio. I wonder if she talked like she wrote — one constant sentence with no pause. I read that puncutation is going out of style in 2016 due to electronic communications and shorted messages. I think this started over a hundred years earlier.
