Chateau by the Sea – 1913


Copyright NY 1909. 99.   [no other description]

Post marked Redford, Mich. Jul 25, 1913.  Addressed to Mrs. Effie L[ee] Weaver, 94 Tireman Ave., Detroit, Michigan.

“July 25 ’13   Dear Aunt, How are you these fine days?  O.K. I presume.  How is the house coming along?  Most done.  Minnie Barns [Minerva Jenks Barnes Bolton Hall, Effie’s Aunt and Esther Jenks Lee’s sister] is here.  Came yesterday. Got in Detroit 10:30 A.M.  We are still picking berries yesterday and have to again today.  When you come out will you bring that box?  I can get it made bors at Northville.   Estelle [Wright]”

Not sure why Aunt Minerva was being referred to by her first married name, unless, Estelle was referring to Erminnie Barnes Westervelt, her daughter.   Erminnie became a widow in 1903.   The word between “made” and “at” cannot be read clearly.
