Elizabeth Warner Camfield, June 4, 1899

Libbie's next letter tells that Sarah Ann has gone to visit in Noble but is still not quite well yet. Also Sarah Ann doesn't know when she'll be visiting Anna in Buchanan.

Earl is walking on his own and Libbie has more work than she can keep up with and hopes to able to hire a girl to help. The corn is planted and the cherries are ripe - this are going well with the farm.

Mr. and Mrs. Bogardus had visited one day a few weeks previously. Mrs. Pond died and they all attended the funeral. Bert Harris' grandfather died in April and his sister and husband were home from California.

Bert Harris was Libbie's brother-in-law, married to her sister Ola. I have not researched his family.
