Belle’s Box – 56

This entry is part 58 of 342 in the series Belle's Box

Read about this series of posts, regarding items in a box originally owned by Belle (Lamunion) Fellows Tinker here. The cast of characters is located here. And, there is an accounting of people about whom I have little information here.

“Wishing You Well
Splendid health I wish for you
Congenial friends kind and true
The kind of work that makes you glad
And each new day the best you’ve had”


Card postmarked Mesick Mich, April 13, 1927 5 p.m.
Mrs Chas Tinker
First Ave South.


Dear Mother
Recived your letter
Today Hie has
Been plowing
We sure have
Had a nice spring

Eunice and Hiram Smith were Belle’s daughter and son-in-law. Charlie Tinker did travel around working on roads, and also in the woods, perhaps he had traveled to Escanaba to work. April seems a little early to be plowing in northwestern lower Michigan; it must have been an early spring.
