Katherine Fletcher to Carrie, Henrietta, Ray, Rhett, and Andrew Craig Fletcher, 1885 September 19
At the top of the page is a hand drawn picture of a turtle.Johnson, V.t.Sept. 19.Dear Carrie:-
I will write you a line or so now as I have a little spare time. But remember this is to you and not to a number of school-girls whom you may chance to show my mud-turtle to, it will not be an advertising, I took it from one of Carrie's drawings she had for the Kindergarden to learn the [Noodlers] to spell mud & also turtle.
I guess you will think I am hard off for news & so I am. I have been to work
forenoon, cleaned my room all up, done my washing, did Mrs. Freeman's breakfast dishes & studied an hour or so.
I will put this letter in of Laura's for you, guess you can read it for she is a very good scholar for as little a girl, see if you can write as good a one to her Must close as I want to write to Mamma
P.S. Will send you this ribbon "remember it soils easily."

You wanted me to go in & see Mrs. Demirit I went last night, she said that shawl would be just right for a common wrap but not enough for two. she also said four yards of that flannel you spoke of would be enough for me a dress, seven a great plenty for both of us. Mr. Freeman would like to have you send her up about 20# of butter if you can this next week, if she has to pay .50 [cent symbol] a lb. No more at present. News is scarce.
