St. Paul, Minn.
Dear Cousin -
I put your Christmas card aside so I wouldn't forget to answer it. Well here it is April and I still haven't done it. I haven't been well lately and was in the hospital for two weeks. Its my heart and I'm not too good. But I'll be 83 years old in June so guess my best days are gone.
My Mother was born July 10, 1869 (changed to 46) and passed away Nov. 1, 1899. She was married July 12, 1876. I do have some of her pictures when she was young and I have some I'm not sure who they are. You must be working on a Family Tree. We miss Mabel and Roy. We were up there last summer for a
week and had a real good time. Got up to Barnesville & Pelican Rapids and to our country cemetary where my Mother and Dad in fact all our family except Ella is buried. There is a place there for Jimmy & me too when the time comes.
Guess Sam Bratons had a big anniversary party last summer. We are having spring weather here. Got our storm windows off and screens on yesterday but I think its pretty early, may have a snow storm yet. Hope you keep well and lets hear from you.
Love Mattie McDunn
Note: If Mattie was 83 years old, this would date the note at 1971.
