Letter from Dot Ellard to Martha Smith; October 23, 1943
From the Ellard-Murphree-Pilgreen-Smith Family Papers Collection. Letter from Dot Ellard to Martha Smith; October 23, 1943. Dot tells Martha that she is taking typing classes and practices by writing this letter. Most of the letter is spent gently chastizing Martha for not writing sooner and asking her to do better, while also summarizing a letter from Sonny Boy that sounds identical to those he wrote his mother and sisters.
