William F. Huggins to daughter, Hattie Belle Huggins-Whitman
letter was written to my grandmother, Hattie Huggins-Whitman, from her
father, William F. Huggins, just days after her wedding.
letter was written on the Pully & Huggins letterhead from the
grocery store that William Pulley and William Huggins owned in Columbia,
Missouri. The text of the letter follows:
I have no news to write but suppose
you will expect a letter from me. I would have gone to train but
we had a crowd and could not get away for 2 hours. I know you
would understand how it was.
Am truly proud to hear you are so
well pleased and hope and pray you may never have any reason to change
your mind and I do not think you will if you do your part.
have decided to leave here and it is now only a question of a
place. Grandpa and Grandma are going to Texas for a long visit and
we have not fully decided what we will do.
I may go to Shawnee if I can get a
place and a living salary.
Mama will write you soon.
Give my best regards to John and accept lot of love from,
