Description 1887; Blair, George E., to Nellie Thatcher. These love letters are a continuation of the above correspondence. Blair is working in Salt Lake and Nellie is in Logan. He travels to some of the northern towns--Kaysville, Bountiful, etc. One day while he is riding the train to Salt Lake to attend the theater where Lewis Morrison is playing, he noted that poor Charley Frank and five other brethern were on their way to the Pen for polygamy, and says how bad they felt. Letters are postmarked from Soda Springs and Paris, Idaho, and some come from Sandy, Draper, Nephi, Payson, Provo, etc. Warns her to take care of her health and constantly reminds her to improve herself. Misses her and sometimes thinks he will return to Logan and work for $40.00 per month just so they can be together.

He shops for Nellie in Salt Lake and they write of the approaching Christmas when they will be together
