Eagles Building, Bucyrus, Ohio -1919


9.  Eagles Building, Bucyrus, Ohio.  Published by Harry H.  Hamm, Toledo, Ohio.  Made in U. S. A.

Post marked Bucyrus, Ohio.  Sept 7, 1919.  Addressed to Mrs. L. G. [Florence Koontz] Weaver, 92 Tireman Ave, Detroit, Mich.

Dear Sister,  Received your letter this morning (Sat.).  The bonnet made as pattern will be plenty large.  Did you get you piece of birthday cake?  Ethel [Koontz Griste, Florence’s sister].   [Then written across the top of the card]  Will write a letter in a few days”

In September 1919, Grandma Florence was in her 8th month expecting her first child, Leila Marie Weaver.  So, it would be just like her to be worried if a bonnet pattern would be correct.  Her older sister, Ethel, has two children at this time, Charles Gardner Griste (4 years) and Dorothy Jane Griste (1 month).    Ethel and her family were living in Toledo, Ohio, at the time.
