“Detroit, Mich.  11/24 ’08.  Dear Friend: – Well it is a nice rainy day just right to study.  You think you are tall but think of a chap 5 ft 9 in in his stocking feet.  That isn’t too bad is it.  I certainly have got a job on hand to get a trial Balloon this afternoon.  Yours, Lee W. [Weaver]”

In 1908, Grandpa Lee was 15 years old.  He continued to grow and was eventually 6′ 1″ tall.
