Etola Robinson, March 18, 1899 (2)
South Bend Ind. March 18
Dear Annie: I recd. your letter and was very glad to hear from you and that your mother is better I was afraid you were going to suffer a double bereavment and one at a time is bad enough.
I hated to come away while you were gone but I thought Lib would see after the children all right and I knew you would not want me to mis the chance.
This is mothers birth day have you thought of it? Wednesday will be Fathers.
get possible. Do you know I have forgotten Lillies's name? expect we will go over to Mishawaka some day and maby I could find her if I could think of her name.
I went to see Magesea Paly Mary Sturet since I wrote you and it was fine well I huess that is all this time maby I will have more to write about next time.
write soon and tell me all the news
Lib was Anna's neighbor, Elizabeth Vorhees.
I think Lillie refers to Ashley's niece, Lillian M. Carlisle Ghrist but I'm not certain.
