Letter to Ada Kirby from Alice Kirby, 22 February 1886
This is a letter from Alice Kirby to her aunt Ada. In the letter, Alice talks about how her father and brothers have been very busy making hay, and are so driven by their work that they camp out in the fields where they are baling. Alice says that she feels like her father is working too hard for his age, and hopes that her uncle John Mallory (her mother’s brother) will come and help them with cultivating.
