Letter from George Potter to Mary Potter (15 Sept 1934) - a Saturday. Mary is working in St. Louis at her temporary employer, while George is back in Sargent, MO.
The farm had a peach tree: 85 quarts of peaches canned without sugar...a wonder nobody died of botulism, since this would most likely have been hot-bath canning at 212F at best.
The good part is on the second page...the car gets a flat, and David Potter fixes it, while Dorothy Potter and her friend Ruby Taylor decide they won't wait and walk on. They get their comeuppance in a sudden rain storm.
|Emma Potter Parker (1878-1953)|
George Potter's younger sister back in Erie County, PA
who sent back some cash now and then.
|Note: Arch Brooks (1886-1968) was the Potter's neighbor. His property surrounded the Potter farm on all sides. Mary was his daughter.|
