This is a letter from Emma Baker Martin to her aunt, Betty Kirby Eller. The letter is brief for Emma, and mentions that her daughter Virginia has a cold. The letter also makes references to enclosed photos of Emma’s husband and daughter, however, these photos are not included in the letter. Emma frequently asks her aunt for butter, and this letter explains her constant need. Emma runs a boarding house and they need a great deal of goods that Emma’s farm cannot produce, and they can’t afford them all the time in town do to cost.
