Amanuensis Monday - 1955 Letter From Lizzie Bake Jones

The following letter is among the second batch of grandma Hazel's ephemera goodies.


                                     Feb 21 - 1955

Dear Cousin: -
  Rec'd your letter and lovely get well card
which James was happy to receive.  "Thank
you so much" for sending it.
  We are having a lot of winter, not so much
snow and very light stuff. but awfully cold
all time, surely eats the coal bin.  We will
be glad to see spring in hopes James' will
get to feeling better.
  Yes I hear from cousin Eural Bake once
in a while but can't be very helpful to him
in genealogy which I'm sorry off.
  My son's passed away at
Seattle Wash. this week she was 77. died
very suddenly of a heart attack, so we've
been rather shocked around here after
getting the news.
  Haven't seen Mabel for nearly two weeks
they  have had bad colds so she hasn't
been down,  have talked to her on the phone
a couple of times. my older sister Annie
is still in very poor health. she lives at
Provo, Utah with her daughter. her grandson
is going on a mission soon as college
closes in June. Must close again as
James doctor is knocking at the door
                 "Love" from Lizzie.

Lizzie's husband, James Lusk Jones died a month later after writing this letter.
