Rose Graham Camfield, 18 Aug 1898


South Bend aug 18th Monday
Dear ann I write this to tell you that we are coming to your house Thursday the 11th eleventh the train leaves here at 9 in the morning I think we get in Buchanan about 4 in the afternoon please have the children meet us and oblige Mrs J H Camfield

It is only about 20 miles from South Bend, IN to Buchanan, MI, a short trip for us today. In 1898 it took Rose and the children seven hours by train because there was no direct rail service and they had to travel to Chicago, IL and then change trains.
