letter  be good

Atwood Gosney is the writer of this letter.  He is the first cousin of Esther and the son of Amanda Sarah Richardson and Thomas Gosney. Willie is most likely a mutual friend and possible suitor of Esther's as well. There is no known family relationship with the Mr Bearman referred to. Duck is obviously a nickname, but their true identity is not known. Aunt Hattie is Hattie Richardson - Esther's mother.
