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

Fayette Friday – Eugene B. Scofield, 28 April 1891

Letter transcription:

Noblesville, Indiana, April 28th, 1891

Dear Sister Lena:

Yours of the 24th, just received, but as I was at Indianapolis yesterday it may have come sooner. I have not been feeling at all well for more than a month, I first had a severe cold for two weeks or more & then had trouble with my stomach. I can hardly say what is the matter, I took considerable unwholesome “dosing” to cure my cold, such as pepper-vinegar stews, lemons, & at the same time drinking too much coffee, & in this way, no doubt, got my stomach disordered. I have had no fever at any time, yet I feel almost past going most of the time. I was a good deal better the latter part of last week, & until yesterday afternoon, but feel indisposed again to-day.

Letter from Eugene B. Scofield, 28 April 1891

Having lost so much time from my elocution, I tried a lesson Monday & one Tuesday. Met Celia at Uncles, she said that Ella & the twins were at her house Sunday. Reported the babies as growing so fast & as looking so sweet in their short clothes. I should like so much to see them. She said that Dan is looking well also. We are very well pleased at Noblesville, my time will not expire until the close of the year. We have a crowded house every Sunday night. Our work goes on satisfactorally & I do not expect it to let up in the least. Kiss the little ones for me & tell them that I should be glad indeed to see all.

Love to Ella, Bal, & my best regards to Dan. & his Mother & Maria.
With much love, I am your brother Eugene.

Lena’s Postcards #47

Marion, Indiana, December 21, 1917, 11 AM
Addressed to: Mrs. Lena Hackleman
R.R. near Harrisburg

Dear Lena: –
I am still tasting that delicious ham you send me this Summer by Mother. I appreciated it if I am slow saying so. With Christmas greeting to you and Mr. H.

Although Louise did not sign her last name, I am fairly certain that Louise was Louise (Updegraff) Wiles, one of Lena’s nieces. “Mother” would have been Lena’s older half sister, Cecilia (Scofield) Updegraff Hargrove. Cecilia and Louise lived for many years in Marion, Indiana.
