Letter from Emma Baker Martin to Betty Kirby Eller, 11 March 1897

Description

This is a letter from Emma Baker Martin to her aunt Betty Kirby Eller. Emma writes about her loneliness since her husband, whom she refers to as ‘Dr.’, has gone to Baltimore for several weeks for a medical course. She has friends stay with her to keep her from being lonely, but is also starting to get ill and will be confined within two months. Emma closes her letter talking about her need for butter to sell, and how she would mail it or have her aunt ship it to her, but the price of shipping is so high.
