Changes to This Site
This blogsite was originally for letters from the 1920s, however as I have completed my other blogsites containing letters from the 1800s, I am now going to be posting letters and diary entries starting with 1900 here. As the site progresses, I will review posts previously entered here and make any needed corrections or add footnotes and then update so that all posts are in chronological order.
