[Letter from Dinkie McGee to Sissie and Bettie, May 30, 1878]

Description: She says that she has been visiting people and that they are all doing well. Tobe brought over a mower and was cutting clovers. She saw the Moore's and they were quite stylish. She hasn't seen Bettie Franklin or Jack Wallace. She is going to start Willie and Sissie in Sunday school. Henry has been helping Mr. Cambell with his wheat and next week help cut theirs. Their chickens are too small to eat and they have some peas, but really good irish potatoes. They should also have good corn with the weather holding up. She wants to send them apples. Mr. Summers is also looking like he won't live long. There is going to be a ball in town and Tobe asked her to go with him, but she didn't have a dress. She asks about Abe and how he is doing with the chills and how they are enjoying Texas. She mentions that the raspberries and blackberries will make good jam and she wishes they were here to make some. She asks about Bill and if he is married. She wants them to save her some wildflower seeds. She sends love and some small request from others. She ends with telling them to write soon.
