Amanuensis Monday - 1926 Letter From Clara Walker Stephens

This is my first Amanuensis Monday post. Amanuensis Monday is an ongoing series created by John Newmark at Transylvanian Dutch

According to Merriam-Webster Amanuensis means one employed to write from dictation or to copy manuscript. So today I am going to 'copy' a letter that was among grandma Hazel's stuff. It was written to her and grandpa Will from Hazel's cousin Clara Welker Stephens.

          Montpelier, Idaho.
                  Feb. 16, 1926

Mr. & Mrs. Wm Piggott - 
   Dear Cousins,
     Thursday the 25th of
this month we'll be the 50th
anaversary of Father and Mother's
wedding day.  We are going to
have a little celebration, and
would like you both to come
down.  We are going to have
all meet in the church at 6. oclock
so if you can not come till
the after noon train on Thurs.
try and come, you know mother
always thinks of you as one
of her girls.
                 Love   Clara
