Description 1890-1899; Blair, Nellie Thatcher, to George E. Blair. On January 13, 1890, Nellie writes to George from Logan, noting the cold weather. The water has been turned out of the canal which has caused closing of the mills and the loss of electricity. By April 4, 1891, she mentions her baby daughter Virginia, who is with her in Logan. Instructs him to send the rent of her mother's property, the schoolhouse, to her mother. He is acting as business agent for Mimi. Tells him of the big interest at this time in politics. Democrats had a big rally. She marched in the parade. All ladies were in white dresses with red, white, and blue badges and white caps with blue and red rosettes on the side. Pleads with George not to go into business on borrowed capital, and checks with him to see if he has paid the bills. Correspondence is from her mother's home in Logan from April 14 through August 28. By July 11, 1894, a letter to George mentions another child, a son Millington. She is again in Logan, complaining about how much she has to be alone. Her health is not too good, as she has many colds and says she weighs only ninety-eight pounds. Cautions him if he goes to Saltair not to drink any strong drinks, not even beer. By June 2, 1896, another baby is mentioned, Philip, and by 1899 another daughter Kathryn has been added to the family. Writes to George who is on a hunting and fishing trip
