Mrs. D. T. Richardson is Harriet (Hattie) Elliott Richardson, the mother of Esther Lee Richardson.  This is a postcard sent to Hattie from her sister-in-law Ruth Richardson Ricketts. Eliza is Hattie's sister-in-law and Ruth's sister Eliza Richardson Yeaman.  I love the every day things  these young mothers talk about.
