Description June 8, 1860; Thatcher, Luna Young, to Alice Young Clawson (sister). Short note. December 26, ? - Salt Lake City to (Logan, Utah); Clawson, Alice Young, to Luna Young Thatcher. Good description of a family Christmas party at the Lion House. Luna's family was the only one missing. Joseph and Briggie were not there, but their wives and children were present. There were tables of candies, nuts, and other sweetmeats to eat. Two Christmas trees hung with a toy for each child, but, she added, nothing for the grown folks. Brigham Young had provided most of the presents, but Alice's husband, Hiram Clawson, had provided presents and supper for his children. Alice had only received a fifty-cent candy heart from one of the children and her second and last present was a bottle of pickles from Clara. Father (Brigham Young) is not very well--has a bad foot. January 7, 1871 - Logan, Utah, to Salt Lake City; Thatcher, Luna Young, to Alice Young Clawson. This is in answer to the previous letter. Family news is exchanged. April 28, 1871 - Logan, Utah, to Salt Lake City; Thatcher, Luna Young, to Alice Young Clawson. Family letter informing Alice how all the family were feeling. She tells of getting ready to move, taking stock in the store, etc.
