Letter from Amanda Barker Morgan to her daughter (& family), Hazel Morgan Smith

Waveland, Ind (tyed as is - her spelling and notations but I did add a FEW Periods (there are none in the whole thing) for easier understanding. This is my great grandmother writing the letter to my grandmother. I loved her "I" -- it looks like a little carot - funny

I believe this is probably in 1929 - late autumn or nearing Christmas -- Amanda died in April 1930
