Mary Maria Tracy Talbot – Amanuensis Monday

This week, as I begin with the seven children of John Edward Tracy, I will start with Mary Maria Tracy Talbot.  Most of the records I have for Mary are about her death and today I am going to transcribe a couple of letters written to her parents around the time or her death.

Dear Mother and all

It’s been a long time since I wrote to you.  I have not been well the rest are as well as usual.  Father Talbot was taken sick the 16 of Nov and died the 22nd.  James got a telegram and went to Great Bend had him sent up and brought Mother and Albert up too as they could not do much there. We are looking for you here Christmas so don’t disappoint us, we have lots of snow just now, and cloudy for more, when you see Ray tell her I will write to her before long, I don’t see why Aunt Ann don’t write or send me the picture she said she had for me.  I answered her letter as as I got it last spring let us know in your next letter that you will be here Christmas.  Good by untill then.    Mary Talbot
