Tis Sweet to be Remembered -1913


Tis sweet to be Remembered.  Would you mind if I said Thank You 

On a Postcard gay and bright 

If you knew I’d scarce a minute

I could sit me down and write.

I’m sure you will accept it

With your own engaging smile,

Since Thank You Postcards have become

The very best style.

Post marked Birmingham, Mich, March 17, 1919.  Addressed to Mrs. Effie L[ee] Weaver, 94 Tireman Ave., Detroit, Mich.

“Dear Aunt, Thought I would drop you a line this fine morning.   Uncle Rob [Robert Churches, husband of Effie’s sister, Hannah Almira Lee Churches] is better but not doing anything.  Momma [Effie’s sister, Marietta Lee Wright] is about the same as when you saw her.  Grandma [Effie’s mother, Esther Jenks Lee] is well.  Prince [Marietta’s father in law, Allen Prince Wright] got better.  How did you get home.  Did the wind blow you away.  Momma was not sick after going to the Gleaners.  Stella [Estelle Wright].

Another full report from Cousin Stella.
