Collection Elsworth Brown Collection
Description a) Envelope addressed to Elsworth Brown at Barton Avenue from his father, G.W. Brown.

b) Letter to Elsworth from George shortly after his mother's death. He says that Elsworth will be reimbursed for any money spent on his mother's hospital bills and burial fees. The house in Chattanooga belonged to George, and Elsworth insisted on paying him rent for it, which his father says not to worry about because he would never call to collect it, and that if he and the other children should ever like to be rid of it just let him know, and he'll sign the deed. He talks about the goings on in Van Wert - the temperatures are high, and Elsworth's uncle was nearly finished updating his porch. He closes with another thought to Elsworth's mother, saying his thoughts "traveled back to the early 90s". Which would ave been the 1890s, of course.
