Anita W., age unknown, Texas


We drove out west this morning. I remained at home all day. In the afternoon I tried to take a ride on horseback but I found my horse had gotten bad, & scary. I only rode a few yards and some one had to pull the bridle. After Tea the Capt, Joe and myself went over to my Mother’s. Jules Navarro was there with my Ma and Concion.
