Abbie B., age 23, Illinois


The other day we went to church at Olive Branch. It is a log church, the first I have ever been in.  The women sit on one side of the church the men on the other. Nearly all the women wore sunbonnets. I dont see how they can hear with them on. The P. O. is a mile from here. I walked over for the mail, and was rewarded with three letters. One from sister Mary. How good she is to write to me so regularly.  *(kansasmemory.org, Kansas State Historical Society, copy and reuse restrictions apply)
