Mowing the grass?  Naw! Peelin’ Pertaters with a buzz saw.  Copyright 1910 by H. A.Waters

Post marked Corning, Ohio, May 23, 1910.  Addressed to Miss Ellora Weaver, 94 Tireman Ave., Detroit, Mich.

“Dear Sister, This is the way you will put on the day when you get home.  Grandma [unknown to whom she is referring.  Grandma Weaver died in 1864, Grandma Knaisch in the same time frame.   She may have beeen referring to Ellora’s mother, Anna Knaisch Weaver] said if you did not have money to come home with to write as soon as you got this.  Everybody is well but Elmer [Elmer Joseph Goodlif Weaver, Ellora;s brother] he has a bad cold.   About all is to hope to hear from you soon, Good by.  From your loveing sister, Mrs. C. M. Weaver [C.  M. Weaver was Casper Merriam Weaver, Ellora’s brother, the writer was Casper’s wife, Anna Irene Potts Weaver]”

Interesting exchange between my grandfather’s cousin and her sister-in-law.   Apparently, mail was sent to my great grandparents’ home at that time.   Adding more to the theory that Ellora was in Mount Clemens for the mineral baths.
