Description 1891-1922; Blair, Nellie Thatcher, to "Mimi," Luna Young Thatcher (Mother). Continuation of mother-daughter correspondence. November 10, 1893, Nellie congratulates her father, who was elected mayor of Logan. Many thank you letters for gifts, i.e., turkeys, chickens, etc. From 1894 to 1898 there is an interval in the correspondence, and then it continues. Nellie says she would like to telephone her mother but hates to have her mother go to the bank to answer the phone. Discusses hired girls. Thanks her many times for coming to stay with the children. Nellie sends her sewing to Logan with a description of what she wants done and a Sister Christiansen does the sewing. September 2, 1902, Nellie writes from Denver where she and George have gone with their family to be in the play , which is booked to run one week, and are going on to Lincoln, Council Bluffs, and Omaha by the middle of the month. Business has been poor and they are staying in hotels and eating in restaurants. Notes they came on the trip quite shabby and were going to replenish in Denver, but they are just getting shabbier. Lapse in correspondence from 1905-1920. September 21, 1920, Nellie writes from Hollywood, California, where she is living in an apartment with her sons Phillip, George, and Millington, and her daughter, Virginia. They are trying to find a house. The boys are not in "pictures," but working outdoors and in a store. Birthday letters are sent to Mimi on her seventy-ninth and eightieth birthdays
