This is the story of my journey through Cora’s scrapbook. Cora is my husband, Ron's, paternal great grandmother. I will give a link to all posts at the beginning of each new post. Here’s that link My posts about Cora's Scrapbook
Today I am presenting one of the letters I found when I went through Cora’s wonderful scrapbook. I’m so very happy that she preserved these pieces of family history for us.
Cora & Thomas only had one child, their son Charles. There are, of course, many references to him in the scrapbook. This one is particularly sweet, as it’s a letter from Thomas to his son Charles.
There is no date on it. Thomas mentions Christmas, so we know what time of year it was. It has to be before Thomas died on 18 Jan 1897, age 52. Charles was only 18 when his father died.

I do think it’s a sweet letter from father to son. I wish I could have known Thomas. He sounds like a loving, caring father.
