July 17, 1923 postcard to Ethan Keith from Nancy Brown

July 17, 1923

To: Ethan Keith, Kalamazoo, MI

From: Nancy Brown, Chicago, IL

Hasn’t heard from anyone and Dorothy is afraid that they don’t want them to come for a visit; however, Nancy said if that were the case someone would have written. The Sissle sisters are back from their vacation and were “wild over their trip” and plan to do it again another summer.

Tuesday July 17, 1923

Have not heard if you got the crate we sent last week. Looked for it back yesterday and to day. Sent an other yesterday. Hope you got it to day as there it was not entirely empty. Dorothy[1] is afraid the prospect of company has made you bolt and the folks at S[2] sick as we have not hear a word from any one. As she said maybe you did not want company. I told her we would go on the grounds that if we were not wanted some one would have witten and told us so. Lela and Bess[3] went this morning to spend the day with Lou.[4] Expect them back about nine P.M. Helen[5] is with Dodo,[6] Jean[7] at home. The girls[8] came home Sat. are wild over their trip. Are all ready to take it an other Summer. Weather just night evry thing else fine. Claude[9] just phoned, wants I should come down town and have dinner with him tomow. Must see to our dinner now. Its 5-20.
