Feb 1899 letter written by Emily (Chatfield) Sperry
"Now I must give you news of
your relations here. Aunt Hattie Warner lives at number 10
University Place, New Haven. Arthur Warner, their son, and family
live in the same house with them. Mary their daughter, teaches in
the kindergarten, public school, boards home. Uncle Egbert
Warner, is losing his mind. He had to give up business. His
general health is good, may live several years. Auntie does the
work for the three in family and looks after Uncle Egbert. She
seems very well. Aunt Julia is a great worker in the church (does
sewing for Mary Warner), and her mother, sister Hattie, beside.)
Uncle William has rheumatism which troubles him. Manages to get
about and use his pair of horses. He does a great deal of riding
during the summer. Is very good to take different people to
ride. He likes to take a drive up to Oxford when the traveling is
fine. We get a treat once or twice during the summer. Wales
Chatfield your only own uncle living, on your father's side, lives on
the old homestead in Oxford. They have only two children.
William Everett is 22 years old, works on the farm with his father,
unmarried. Mary the daughter is 17. She has been attending
school for 2 years in N.H. and boarded with us. The first year,
1897, she attended a young ladies school, stayed there one year.
Her health would not permit of her graduation. This year she is
home. She may teach next season if her mother can spare her help".
Keep in touch - hoping to heart from you soon.
