Description

  • Content Description: Letter from Dinkie McGee to Mary and Charles Moore in which she wrote about the health of her family and the cold weather. She describes Alice McGee's wedding including the food that was served and some of the presents. She also wrote about the visits between family and friends since her last letter. She requests blue dye as the indigo she has turns the cloth "black." Will Dodd adds a note at the end of the letter. On a separate sheet of paper Birdie McGee wrote about working on two quilts, not wanting to make her bed, visiting family and friends, and accidentally breaking four eggs.
