This is a letter written by my husband's great-grandmother, Sarah Frances
Waggoner Buchanan, on December 27, 1893, to her daughter-in-law, Parthenia
Buchanan, the wife of her oldest son, Samuel Douthitt Buchanan, who lived
in Callahan County, Texas at the time. Charley, mentioned in the letter,
would have been only 7 years old, when he killed the turkey gobbler.

I received your letter & was more than glad to hear from you all. This
leaves us all well as common. I was sorry to hear Gorden was sick. I am in
hopes he will be well soon. You don't know how glad I was to receive the
boys picture. It looks sweet like him. That foot looks just like him. Kiss
him for me. We have got our well dug. They went 65 ft. We have plenty water
and good water. Charley kill a turkey gobler Christmas day.
We had turkey Tuesday. It rained last Sunday night. It rained last night.
It is cold and cloudy today. Tell Sam to write when he comes back. Manda move to her dugout today.
I will close by requesting you to write soon. Write all the news. Goodby.
S. F. Buchanan
