From the Ellard-Murphree-Pilgreen-Smith Family Papers Collection. Letter from Pauline Smith to Martha Smith; February 16, 1942. She talks about church and updates Martha on the rest of the family- Sonny Boy is attending a dance but she worries he will be poorly dressed, Christine has passed on news that Phil is happy in the army, Sam Sr. is in ill health, on a diet and seeing a doctor but apparently on the mend. Pauline expresses dismay that fewer people are coming to church and talks about projects that she has taken on for the church, including making candy and gardening. Enclosed are two additional letters to Pauline from Bernice that discuss her not wanting to talk about a man who married someone else and setting aside money for building a bathroom.
