Title

Transcript of Letter to Thomas Rees about Life in Portland

Description

Transcript of letter addressed to Father, who is most likely Thomas Rees from his daughter Lora Rees. This letter was transcribed sometime after the 1970's, but the original letter is not accounted for. In the letter Lora talks about how she lives with Mr. Hackery in Portland while also working a job where she sews. She has recently just gotten a pay raise from six dollars to nine dollars per week. She ends the letter with news that there is an outbreak of small pox in Walla Walla. This is one item from the Rees Family Correspondence Collection, which includes many letters between family members in Oregon and Ohio.
