Court House, Pontiac, Mich. – 1915


Court House, Pontiac, Mich.  13080.

Post marked Detroit, Mich. Feb 9, 1915.  Addressed to Mrs. Weaver, 92 Tireman Ave, Detroit, Mich.

“Dear Mrs. Weaver, I should have been up to your place but have been very much under the weather that I have not been out for over a week so if you would please send me down your order I would feel very much oblige.  You can also have four premiums this month if it suits you.  Hoping to see or hear from you.  Sincerely yours, Mary Sorrell”

It seems Great Grandma Weaver was into ‘catalog buying’ back a hundred years ago.  Not sure what Mrs Sorrell was selling, but she was offering four premiums for having not called on Effie.
