Postmarked:  18 Nov 1912  Danville, VA 
Addressed: Mrs Daniel Richardson
                   Ringgold Va
                   R.F.D 2

Mrs Daniel Richardson was Hattie Elliott Richardson and mother of Esther. Mrs L. P. Hagood  was Lena Hagood (1898-1967) of Danville, Va.  Lena would actually have been the age/generation of Esther. This makes me question if I have the correct woman. I do not know the identity of Lizzie. Interestingly, the letter is postmarked the day of Hattie's husband's death.
