Fayette Friday – A Wedding

Letter transcription:

Elwood, Ind., Jan 23 1894

Dear Sister Lena:

I understand by your letter of yesterday that you fixed the hour for Thursday morning February 8th.

If I am still here I will come the day before, if at Thorntown I will arrive at Connersville at 5.17 a.m. Thursday, & return to Indianapolis on 10.25 train.

I do not have any idea that Etta can come but I will write her.

We have had over 30 added and great crowds every night. We had a meeting for men only last Sunday and the house was full.

With love to all

(You will hear further) Eugene

Address: Mrs. J.W. Hackleman, R.R. No. 3, Connersville, Ind.

2.22.12
My Dear Lena: Heard from a
recent letter that you have a
new auto. Congratulations. How
does this blizzard seem in country
Wed. a.m. hundreds of women [?]
week had to walk through 14
or 15 in drifted snow, 10 to 15 [squares?]
to work. Only two car lines working
& they kept snow scrapers at work
on track all night  Y & F were lucky
in living on one of these lines.
Ill think I never seen a worse
blizzard. Love—Bal.
