Bessie arrived a hospital in good condition
will let you know again


Bessie Ann Lamunion was the daughter of Merritt “Scott” Lamunion and his wife Adelia Widger, and a niece of Belle.

Bessie’s second husband, Elgie Stewart, must have written this card after taking his wife to the hospital, probably in Cadillac, but possibly Traverse City.

Bessie and Elgie were married 13 March 1910, and Elgie died on 9 March 1939. Since Belle married Charley Tinker 15 July 1913, this card was likely written between March 1910 and July, 1913.
