Tamerson L Carlisle, Feb 19, 1899

The next letter was from Anna's daughter, Tamerson. Due to copyright considerations I will just provide a summary.

Tamerson mentions that she gave her brother Daniel the 14¢ that Anna had left for him. Anna was away for Daniel's fourteenth birthday. Tamerson gave him a gift also:
I thought and thought what to give him and finally I thought a tablet would do him more good than an orange or banana.

The children were supposed to stay with Anna's friend, Toley Robinson, however Daniel was being difficult about it so they were with Toley during the day and they stayed alone at the house at night.

A very short letter just to let her mother know that they were both OK.

I suspect that Dan would have preferred the orange.

I agree-he probably would have rather had the orange :)
