Thank You from Aunt Jessie

Chicago, Illinois
Sept. 12, 1945

Dear Gladys: We arrived at our own door just 4:30 P.M. every thing unpacked, our dinner over, dishes washed a fire in the grate and now to write notes (no cards) thanking all who were so kind to us giving us such a good time. It was splendid to be in your home again and have the visit and admire the blessed boys – only regret that Roscoe so far away yet this moment he is coming closer. We do hope you will have time for a good visit and that soon he will be home to stay. Silvester feels a bit tired but we will retire early and the morning will find him ok. Again our thanks.

Much love,
Jessie and Silvester

    What a surprise to find a neatly typed note in the collection!

    If I recall correctly, you said that Sylvester died shortly after this. 😦

      Yes, Silvester died in December 1945. I have another card like this from Jessie, after Silvester’s death. She apparently sent some of Silvester’s clothing to Roscoe.
