Lena’s Postcards #14

West La Fayette, Indiana, January 16, 1912 8 PM

Addressed to:
Mr. & Mrs. J. W. Hackleman

1/16 – 1912 Have just mailed mother a report of our timothy and clover seed which I think is fine: the timothy is 99.57 percent pure seed & clover is almost as good. I expect that we will be kept pretty busy from now on. I suppose it is too cold to have much sport hunting rabbits or has Johnnie got them all. Write yours as ever,

Irvin was Irvin Dora Shortridge, another Shortridge cousin. He was the older brother of Bertha (Shortridge) Rees. “Johnnie” may refer to the Hackleman’s youngest son, John Carl Hackleman.
