Muncie Ind. Sept. 4, 83’ 7 p.m.
Ettie & Lin were out together this afternoon and Lin told Ettie that she had written you not to come to Muncie at present as she had had much company of late.
Come and visit us anyway—Ettie wants you to come and so do I. You can visit us and have a good time here, if Lin is tired. Sherman has gone to work in C— and is boarding at Josh Greer’s. Ettie send love and say come. Love to all Eugene. Answer on receipt.
[Editor’s note: Lin may be Lena and Eugene’s older half sister Malinda (Scofield) Claypool, who lived in Muncie. I have also seen Malinda possibly referred to as Minnie. This envelope was addressed to Lena in Kokomo where she was apparently staying with another brother Frank.]
