I had a lovely letter from your mother at Christmas. I had finally got around to visit them - by mail.
I had a nice visit with Laura Wineland the other night. She has been in Calif for 6 weeks now. She is lovely of face and form and lovely with personality too.
Since I saw Laura I have found the administrators deed of our Great Grandmother Jane Pearse's father. Our Great Great Grandfather was Ambrose Pierce who died in 1847 in Tuscarawa, Co, Ohio. I am copying it for you.
We have had a bad time in the family. Uncle Ralph Winder (Hazel Goad's husband. Hazels mother was Ollie Wineland & Ollie's son John Goad both passed away - both my Uncles, so this will be a short letter altho started long ago to let you know I am still working on our family tree, when I have time for it.
