Easter Greetings – 1909


Easter Greetings.  212. 

Post marked Redford, Mich.  Apr 12, 1909.  Addressed to Mr. Lee Weaver, 94 Tireman Ave., Detroit, Mich.

“Apr 11, 09    How are the folks?  Grandma [Esther Jenks Lee] is better.  Was glad to hear that you got your place all right.  How is your Ma [Effie Lee Weaver]. I hope better.  Love Mae Wright [Mariam Mae Wright]”

Apparently, Spring of 1909 was not a good health time for the Lee women.  Great Great Grandmother Lee was only better and cousin Mae was sending wished that Great Grandmother Weaver was doing better.  Not sure what she meant by Grandpa Lee getting his place.  In 1909, Grandpa would have been turning 16 years old.  So, he would not have been moving into his own living quarters.  Possibly, Mae was referring to his place on the Great Lakes Steamer for the summer or his place in Business School.
