CAMPBELL COUSINS CORRESPONDENCE
June 16, 1923.
Just a word at the start to
express my appreciation to Cousin Will
Selph for this most excellent plan, worked out in detail
for the purpose of keeping in closer touch with our kin. I am
sure it will prove very successful and we will find the time
between the secretary’s reports all too long.
Having been away from you all so
many years, no doubt there are some of my second or even third
Cousins who do not remember me, much less my family, and as it
has been suggested by the secretary that we write about
ourselves, it may be well at the start to say that our family
Louise [SIZER Campbell], my
who is twenty-seven, and
William C., Jr.
Henry is single and interested
with me in business. William, or "Bill" as he is called, just
finished high school this week.
Marinette, my home since I left
Pennsylvania in 1883 is a little city of 14,000, situated on
Green Bay and the Menominee River, the river separating or
dividing the two states of Wisconsin and Michigan. Just across
the river is the city of Menominee of 12,000 inhabitants.
Socially, the two cities are as one, but in a business way
there is much rivalry.
Formerly lumber was the main
industry, but the last fifteen years the lumber mils have been
replaced by paper mills, novelty factories, knitting mills,
glove factories, and many smaller industries where the use of
lumber goes into the product.
The state is noted for its inland
lakes, and we have wonderful roads, so when you are looking
around for a place to spend your summer vacation, just head
your car (whether it be a Flivver or a Packard) toward
Wisconsin and "Step on it". We are on the main line and you
cannot miss us.
My family all join with me in
sending their love,
