November 24, 1911

Nov 24 1911

Dear Esther-
            How are
your boys getting
on up there. What
do you expect to do
on Thankgiving.
You bet that fellow
cleaned out your
well. I know he
will be there Ha Ha
C.T .Barnett

Postmarked: None

     Miss Esther Richardson
     Ringgold, Virginia

C.T. Barnett may have been Esther's first cousin Cam Barnett, the son of Cynthia Elliott and Sam Barnett.  If the writer was indeed Cam Barnett, he would have been about 11 years old.  This seems perhaps a little young, but maybe not.  Of course, the writer could be a different Barnett altogether.

Barnett cousins, what do you think?

Wishing your family a Merry Christmas!  Look for Dearest Esther to return December 28th!
