May 20, 1883 letter to Nancy Betts from Eugene Crawford

May 20, 1883 

To: Nancy Betts

From: Eugene Crawford, White Pine, CO

Written on Crawford House stationery, showing E. L. Crawford as the proprietor. Eugene is writing his grandmother and enclosing $2.00. He would have sent more, but couldn’t because he didn’t expect to realize anything from his mine until the fall. His wife, Minnie, is tired of living in Colorado and he hopes to send her back in the fall. He will come also if possible. He sends news that D.C. has a new baby daughter.
