[Letter from Anna Boyd to Charles B. Moore, April 27, 1899]

Description: This is a letter from the Charles B. Moore Collection. It is written by Anna Boyd and is addressed to Charles B. Moore. She informs Moore about the reasons for the family's delay in continuing correspondence with the Moore family since their visit to Colorado. In this letter, Boyd discusses the weather's affect on their crops for this spring. She details the failures they had last season due to grasshoppers and hopes that this season would be better than the last. She notes that they did not have much success with fruit, though the gooseberry harvest looks promising. She mentions to Moore what the family plans to sow this season and tells him that they are all well at present. The envelope is included with the letter.
