...Yes, I have many letters written to my mother when she was a young working woman in the late 20's & early 30's. Also a few from after she married my Dad in 1933.

...I photocopied those letters and some photos and sent them to children of the letter writers. (some of the families were still in Mom's old home town)

...So far I've gotten THANKYOUs, but no-one has found any letters written BY my mother.

...I only wish I had done it earlier, because two of the ladies had JUST passed away. But their families were extremely thrilled to receive the items I sent to them. I'm so glad I did it, if only for that reason!
