This is a letter from Emma Baker Martin to her aunt Betty Kirby Eller. The letter opens as usual for Emma, writing about the price of butter, fabric, and postage. Emma also mentions her youngest child, Virginia, who is healthy and playful. The letter closes with a rant about her indentured servant, whom she greatly despises.
