Fayette Friday – Eugene B. Scofield, December 26, 1883

Letter transcription:

Muncie Ind. Dec. 26/83

Dear Sister Lena,

I have for a long time been owing you a letter; for reasons poor but still not insignificant I have not written much in the way of correspondence for some months yet hope to do better in future.

Lee is here—came yesterday—May is also here—came last Saturday—We all four took turkey at Adamsons yesterday—Dr. S. & his wife, her father & mother, and a Miss Wilmorth [?] of [?] were there also, left soon after dinner as Ettie’s Pa & Ma came up on the noon train. Ma and Guy are still here, but will leave this 2 p.m.

[page 2] Christmas eve we had an entertainment at the church—everything went off so nice—the house was crowded.

Last night we all went to the M.E. S.S. entertainment, they had a full house also

11 a.m.
Just here five young fellows came in to see Lee & May, staid five minutes and went to the next place, Ludlows.

Immediately after dinner we four will go to the gallery on the corner one square from here and get four gems[?] of the group.

Lee & May will sleigh ride this afternoon.

Ankah Bowman will be up Friday and stay with Ettie while I go to Dunreith to hold a weeks meeting.
