Post marked Redford, Mich. Jan 23, 1912. Addressed to Mr. Lee Weaver, 94 Tireman Ave., Detroit, Michigan.
“Redford, Mich. Jan. 23, 1912 Dear Cousin: How are you? I am well and the rest are sick. Our folks are well, but I mean Justin’s [ Justin Rosenthral Jenks, son of Leman Case Jenks, the brother of their grandmother, Esther Jenks Lee] folks and Arley’s [Albert Arlington Jenks, son of Leman Case Jenks, the brother of their grandmother, Esther Jenks Lee] they are sick. If nothing prevents I will be down Friday night. Well, so long. Mae W.[right] P.S. Have you gone to work yet or haven’t you got a job. How is Florence? Mae Wright [Mariam Mae Wright, daughter of Marietta Lee Wright, Lee’s mother’s sister]”
It appears the illness in the ½ brothers’ homes was not fatal — no one died that winter. Justin and Arley had the same father, but different mothers. This is the first mention by Mae of Florence. But with recent correspondence, it is a question of which of Grandpa’s Florence friends she is inquiring.
