MISCELLANEOUS PAPERS 94-080
Letter, two pages in
length, with envelope.
19 March 1869.
from J & J Lubrano.
Scope and content:
from a young woman named Delia, living near Windsor,
Missouri, to her cousin Gus, (R. A. Park) in Cedron, Ohio. Delia is a school teacher, not currently
working because she “could not brave the prairies in winter,” and because her
help is needed at home. The letter
describes how she sat down “to the melodion,” for
respite after a long day of washing, when she received her cousin’s
letter. She suggests that would her
cousin come to visit, he could give her guitar lessons, though he would find
her a “dull scholar” who plays too much “at random.” She also invites him to join a Saturday night
singing at the schoolhouse, at which they wing from a book entitled The Key
Note, which she declares is “behind the times,” but still suitable to this
group of beginners.
