Wash to Smooth Wrinkles -1912


CONTENTMENT – Wash to smooth wrinkles.  A Daily portion of this essence use’t will smooth the brow and tranquility infuse.    Beauty Hint Series No. 47.  Copyright 1910 by Leota Woy, Denver, Colo.

Post marked Redford, Mich. Dec. 9, 1912.  Addressed to Mrs. Effie L[ee] Weaver, 94 Tireman Ave., Detroit, Mich.

“Effie, I think about the first fine day this week we will be in to do that little business we were speaking of.   I spoke to Willie [Lewellyn Lee, Effie’s brother] and he said he would go with us.  I don’t think it will be  Wed.  I hope it won’t be like this all the week week. Steve [Stephen A. D. Wright, husband of Marietta Lee Wright, Effie’s sister] went in with potatoes today. Esther [Esther Rebecca Wright, Ettie’s daughter, born in February, 1912] is better.  Ettie [Marietta Lee Wright, Effie’s sister].”

Looks like Aunt Ettie and Great Grandma Weaver were conspiring about something back in 1912.  Uncle Willie was in on it as well.
