Post marked Toledo, Ohio.  Jun 14, 1918.  Addressed to Mrs L. G. [Lee G / Florence Koontz] Weaver, 92 Tireman Ave., Detroit, Mich.

“Received your letter this afternoon.  Will look for you Sat.  I heard from Mama [Phebie Ann Gardner Koontz] this morning.  Please don’t expect G. [Charles Gardner Griste] to go with you  as I don’t think daddy [William McKinley Griste] could stand it.  Ethel [Koontz Griste]”

Aunt Ethel (Grandma Florence’s older sister) was letter her know that she was expected to visit the Griste family in Toledo the following weekend.  Nephew, Gardner, almost 4 years old, might have been planned to visit with Grandma and Grandpa (this is 4 years before their first child was born), but Aunt Ethel was letting them know Uncle Charles wasn’t going to let it happen.
