I really do not
know what to write about. Our family is small and with Mama
and Eva both writing we will no
doubt write about the same things.
I am very proud to be included in this
Correspondence even if I am not a good letter writer.
My family consists of my husband, John
Hazlett, Sr., Anne
Taylor Hazlett, six and one half years old and John
Hazlett, Jr. nearly four years old. Anne is in first grade and
seems inclined toward music, while Jack Junior's mind goes to playing
base ball [sic] and flying
Perhaps some of the Cousins would care to
hear about my "In-Laws". Aunt
Nan and Uncle Will
Pepper live on the next street to us. Uncle Will Pepper is
carpenter at the Eclipse Machine Company. Aunt Nan is not very well.
Their oldest granddaughter, Virginia,
is staying with them and going here to school. Aunt Fannie
Monroe and Donald
live in their home on Oakwood Avenue. As you all know Uncle Will
Monroe died about a year and a half ago. Aunt Fannie is Tax
Collector and Donald works at the Eclipse Machine Company. Edward
is married and lives in Elmira.
Hazlett is on the old farm1 at Nelson. I do not think
he could be induced to leave it, and we are all glad as it is a mighty
nice place to go. He bought a pony, saddle and cart this spring so you
can imagine the children like to go to the farm.
live about two blocks from us. Dad is still in the grocery business,
Jack, Sr. helping him. Dad is very well and works every day. Lucy,
the younger daughter, is a freshman in Syracuse University, while Margaret
and her husband, Carl
Kresge, are living with Mother and Dad. They have the dearest
blue?eyed daughter, Jean
Louise, nearly five months old. Mother also has Dorothy,
six years old, (Blaine's
daughter) with her. Blaine's wife
died about four weeks after Uncle Will Monroe. Clinton,
their oldest son, is married and lives in Detroit.
This is rather a long letter after all
but my husband's family is somewhat larger than mine.
I am enclosing pictures of Jack, Sr. and
Jack, Jr. I really did not have one of Anne I'd care to send but
will have one next time sure.
