Lumberton, Miss.

Dear Sir,

          Can you tell me if Barbara McInnis still lives in Lumberton or the surrounding country? She was there several years ago but I did not know if she be living or dead. She is a relative of mine and am anxious to learn of her whereabouts. Shall greatly appreciate any information you may give me concerning her.

Yours truly,
Mrs. M. J. Dennison

Lumberton, Miss.

Dear Mrs Barnes,

          Perhaps you think me very ungrateful and right you do, but immediately after your letter came I was sick and have not been well since. I certainly appreciate your information in regard to Aunt Barbara.           My Mother was a niece of Aunt Barbara's husband - Lula McInnis -She died when I was a mere baby - but since I have been married I've found several little notes and mentions of how dear Aunt Barbara was to her. It seems they were neighbors before Aunt B returned to Lumberton. I never found these until lately and so I wanted to know of Aunt B. I do not remember my mother and have seen but few of her people - So anyone dear to her would naturally be dearer to me. Because I have only a few of her old letters and books. Especially now do I think of her and sometimes wish for her. I know I should not, but in a few weeks we are expecting our first baby and naturally I think vou would want vour Mother at such a time.

          My Father lives at Prentiss, Miss., so sometimes perhaps we may meet and talk of Aunt Barbara. If around or in B'ham we should very much appreciate a visit from you.

          I am returning the clippings for I know you were keeping them. I certainly thank you for your information.

Sincerely yours,
Mrs. Lucille Magee Dennison
