CAMPBELL COUSINS CORRESPONDENCE
May 10, 1923.
Dear Cousin Will:-
Today finds us shivering over
the stove trying to keep warm. Yesterday morning there was one
inch of snow on the ground when we got up and it snowed hard
until ten o’clock and then snow squalls every little while
until about ten A.M. today. It is beginning to warm up now.
Farmers are mostly through sowing
grain and were getting ready to plant corn but this snow will
stop that for a short time.
I was up and saw Dell
Van Dusen, yesterday; he us very poorly, has been in bed
about two weeks; he has not been able to walk for some time.
Have not seen any of the Cousins since we were at the Cousins
Dinner in October.
I received your letter and copy
of the correspondence you had
with Cousin Herb Hughey,
for which I thank you very much; that is the first time I have
ever heard a word written by himself since he went west. Aunt
Jane Tubbs went out there once and she used to hear from
the family occasionally. I certainly am glad Herb has done so
well and that he has a nice family. He has left a record they
can be proud of.
Will, when you come up in July,
bring the picture of Herb and his
wife with you for I think all the Cousins would like to
Mary is trying to clean house. The help she had engaged to help is sick in bed so she is doing a little at a time but it goes slow; help is very scarce about all you get is a promise. Remember us to Edith, Doris, and Mrs. Loder. Hoping this finds you all well, I close,
