Luther is Luther Hardy (b. 1893) and the son of James and Virginia Hardy of Pittsylvania County, Virginia. As you may recall, Luther was a suitor (or maybe "suitor wannbe") of Esther's. Luther previously wrote to Esther on March 31, 1912 and July 24, 1912. "Ruben" is Reuben Richardson (b. 1897), Esther's brother.  He is often referred to in the correspondence between Esther and her friends and family.
