Letter to Alonzo Ordway from his sister, Mabel Ordway. Alonzo wrote on the back of it "This letter probably written 1960 or therabouts"

"Dear Lon,

Under separate cover I'm sending you some old photographs which you may look at and dispose of the females.
Take a good look at the picture of Grandmother Ordway {Lucretia C. Pierce}. She was humiliated because she didn't have on a silk dress. I don't know why.

You do not look like her except the fair skin, but in most other ways you are identical.

She was very generous, popular, loved parties, dinners and a general grand time. She travelled with the banker set. She was a good cook and a fine hostess.

If you remember her at all, she was old and beyond her party age. She lived to be 84 years.
Love, Mabel"
