We found the following letter in an old family Bible (no publish date but very old). The letter reads as follows:
Humboldt, Tenn. June 19th/69
Miss Mary F. Morris
Well Mary as I have written to your Papa I will write you a few words two & I hope by this time you have learned to write well enugh to answer. We are all well. Mary & I have a nice place & two little boys. You must come to see us some time & stay two or three months. Tell Lilly & Rosy Fyke to let me hear from them. Tell all of my old students that I often think of them & would like to hear from them. Let me hear from you soon.
R. H. Fiser
I've added some punctuation but retained original spelling. We believe the MORRIS family lived in or near Cedar Hill or Springfield, Robertson Co. TN in 1869. We know of no connection of the FISER family with my wife's MORRIS family. He sounds like a former teacher of the young girl.
Anyone wanting a copy should feel free to email me.
Russ James of Houston Co. TN
