This letter from Ada Kirby to her mother, Frances, discusses Bettie’s health. Ada has come to Bettie’s home after Bettie gave birth to Robert Earl in April. Ada says that Bettie has been left bedridden with an abscess from injuries during the birth, and that her condition has neither worsened nor improved.
