Object Name Letter
Scope & Content Sep. 18th 1907
My dear son
I received your letter from Hendersonville which I answered the same day. Also your postal today dated from Asheville. I am glad you are feeling so well. It shows what a little change of surroundings will do. Once a year is ? too often to break the ?long of life, and I hope you will always after this be able to take a rest each summer.
Poor Laura (?) is about all to pieces, says in October is going to take a whole month off. Lewis is working here most of the time in the Office but some times outside. He has been pretty well until some night work put him back some.
There has been no mail since you left except the letter that was forwaded soon after you left. The samples from Quincy came soon after you left. The Express 50% paid.
News came this Monday that little Jessie C? had died rather suddenly in New Jersey. There was a man killed on the car tracks ??night before last I can't know much about it but there is suspicion that he was killed and put there.
Hinton and Harris (?) got back Monday Hinton has the appointment but not his commission, so every thing from a law point is still tied up.
Harris said his mother was so disappointed. When she heard you had gone as far as Hamlet with H but you did not go to see them. Harris says his mother thinks you one of the finest young sons she ever saw. I think the other Bakers leave to-day for N. C. Sandsbury I think, to stay awhile and in about amonth to come home by August.
John took dinner with us to-day. His tongue has been going like a Mill Race and he asked aheap about "uncle Sloth"
I sent last week's house papers directed to Hendersonville but with a two cent stamp I have written you all I heard that was going on so hoping you will enjoy every moment while you are away and with love from all I remain your devoted
