Transcribed copy of a faded copy of a letter to an editor (presumably of the newspaper for Tannersville) sent to Peggy by her mother's cousin Bruce Lackey, now deceased. No name of the newspaper or date of publication showing.
Postscript from Patricia Morrow, Windham Town Historian:
Mrs. Sidonia Palace was the editor of The Windham Journal for many years. I bet that's where this clipping came from.
Do you think your readers would be interested in the list of students entering the Tannersville Grade School on Sept. 18, 1897? All the old families are represented. Sincerely, Mildred Allen
