Say! Don’t you think I’ve waited – 1913


Say! Don’t you think I’ve waited long enough? [hand written below: to answer your letter].  “Sunbonnet Kid,” Series 938

Post marked Birmingham, Mich.  Jun 18, 1913.  Addressed to Mr. Lee G. Weaver, 199 S. Main St., Akron, Ohio.

“6/18/13    Dear Lee, Have been too busy to write before.  Was at the Island last Friday.  Had a swell time.  Wound up at the Temple.  Am going to the Lyceum tomorrow with a different fellow still. Was at the laying of the corner stone of the new Pontiac High School yesterday.  With Love, Irene [Jenks]”

Possibly, this different fellow still was Joseph George Jones.  Irene and Joseph were married on 25 September 1913, so she probably was not dating around much after mid June if she was married by the end of September.  Not sure of the Island reference — since Irene lived in Birmingham, it could very well have been Apple Island in the middle of nearby Cass Lake.
