Tamerson L Carlisle, July 7, 1907

The next letter was written by Tamerson from her brother Frank's home in Roseland, Chicago, Illinois. She was writing to tell Anna that she would not be home as planned but had decided to stay a while longer so she could attended Frank's mission picnic. Apparently she and someone named Mary were there to help Frank with the children while Mamie was away:
Mammie just managed to catch the Boat at St. Joseph the day we came. She has gone to Pullman this P. M.

Pullman, Michigan is in Allegan County, a couple of counties north of Buchanan, Berrien County. I'm not sure why she would have been going there but there are members of her family I have not located on the 1900 or 1910 censuses so I have a new location to search. I an earlier 1907 letter, Frank stated the Mamie had gone to visit her mother in Crown Point, Indiana.

There really isn't much to this letter. I have no idea who Mary was. Perhaps she was one of Tamerson's friends that Frank was willing to employ as a nanny.

Sewell's broken arm isn't mentioned so hopefully it healed alright.
