...here is the letter...

Stockdale, Texas
May 29, 1910
Mrs. Mintie Cooper

Dear Sister,

I will try to write you a few lines this warm evening. All are tolerable, well except the baby. His bowels is bad all the time. I just wish you could hear him talk. He can say almost anything he wants to, and just as plain as can be. He sure has long, curly hair. I curl it in six curls, and he is sure pretty. He has an awful sore toe. He may have the nail nearly off of it. Well, tonite ends our school for this term, and a big time is expected.

Oh Mintie, how fast the grim reaper of death is reaping in and around Stockdale in less than three months. I will name some who have been lain away in Stockdale's city of the dead. Here they are. Dr. Johnson, old Grandma King, Mr. Moffit, Mrs. Carter, Lottie Pritchit (or Pritchet), Mrs. Dock Rice, Hodge Bishop, Cathline Park, and two of Mr. Culpepper's grandchildren, a baby of Mr. Stevenson's, and it seems like there is someone else, but I can't think who. Oh, I tell you they are going fast, but the Lord knows best. Oh, who will be next. It may be some of our own will be the next.

I heard a few days ago that Mr. Morris (or Norris) Miller was very low and not expected to live. Mintie, they say the Bishops took the Hodges death awful hard, and his poor little wife is almost crazy. They had only been married six months, and she was in a very delicate condition. She was Alma (Ma – but cannot make out remainder of letters). Hodge joined the church last summer, so I hope he was ready for the summons when it came. It would not be half so sad if everyone could be ready, but just think of old Brother Carter's wife. She committed suicide. She had lost her mind, and the church had made up enough money to send her to the asylum, and they were to take her the day she was buried. She cut her throat from ear to ear. Poor old Brother Carter. I sure do feel sorry for him. He is 70 years old, and she was (either 38 or 48). Brother Carter is an old worn out preacher. He is the father of our pastor. She left four little children. I suppose the oldest is about 8, and the baby is 2. Two little girls and two little boys. She had several step children.

Well, Mintie, I sure do love Leroy's wife. She is sure a sweet girl, and is as jolly as can be. I have been looking for her to come down and stay a few days with me, but she has not come. I had a card from her one day last week, and she said she would be here as soon as Henry got back from court, so I sure looked for her Saturday and yesterday. Mintie, how many little chicks have you. I only have 26. The fleas are killing mine. I have 12 about broilers, and 14 about 2 ½ weeks old. All of them are growing fast. I had a letter from ma a few days ago. Pa was up but very feeble, and Willie was just able to sit up. He had had 2 or 3 hemorrhages, and Ma said he looked awful bad.

Marshal Leigh has had slow fever. I have not heard from there in several days, so I do not know whether any of the rest have taken it or not. Well, I must close. Write when you can. I have been very busy sewing. I have about finished up though. Tell the children to write. Hello Buddy John. How is the hot weather serving your fat. It and my fat don't agree. Oh, how I do wish I could walk in and chat you all awhile. I do hope you all can come down this summer. My Hub is working for 25.00 per month now, but will get more after June. Bye bye. Love to all from all.

Your loving sis,

Mattie
