Ohio State Penitentiary, Columbus, Ohio. 21503N. Pub. by W.S. Harriman, Columbus, Ohio
Post marked Columbus, Ohio. Jul 6, 1920. Addressed to Mrs. L. G. [Lee G / Florence Koontz] Weaver, 92 Tireman Ave, Detroit, Mich.
“Dear Sister, Received your letter this morning (Tuesday). I was the one that told Mama [Phebie Ann Gardner Koontz] for you to stay here nights. It will be easier for me to have you that way & you know I want you part of the time. You will like Mrs. Sabin, she is lovely. Ethel [Koontz Griste]”
Apparently, Grandma Florence was going to visit Great Grandma Koontz in Columbus and Aunt Ethel was arranging for her accommodations. Since it was July of 1920, Grandma would probably be travelling with her 9 month old daughter, Leila, as well.
Double amusement with the post card of the Ohio State Pen. Why would anyone have created a post card of it? And, it is really great to have since, Great Grandpa Koontz learned to cane chairs in that facility. (Not as an inmate, but as a student).
