Miss Jessie I. Burrows
1153 University Ave.
Wichita, Kan.


Dear Jessie.  Saw this place this morning. Finest drive.  Coolest ?, and most beautiful sights one may see.  Will was with us six hours.  Wish it were 60.  Got your letter in Chicago.  Will write more.  Sincerely, Mrs. Bass.

Watching these posts over time has made me feel amazed that Miss Jessie Burrows had a friend that was so well traveled at the turn of the century! It must have been very unusual. It is good that she kept the post card collection.

"Will was with us six hours" - not sure about the other question mark

Mary, Jessie lived on University Street between two elderly sisters, neither of whom had children of their own. In 1899, another sister died and the care of the deceased sister's two youngest children was split between them, one child going to one and another child to the other. Nellie Benton was sent to live with her aunt, Emily Fowler Allison, wife of James Allison. Will Benton was sent to live with his aunt, Clara Fowler Bass, wife of Dr. S. A. Bass. Jessie eventually married Will, so these neighbors became relatives by marriage. Both Aunt Emily and Aunt Clara traveled extensively and had the means to do so.

Brett, thanks for the assist!

An interesting discussion is worth comment. I think that you should write more on this topic, it might not be a taboo subject but generally people are not enough to speak on such topics. To the next. Cheers

This is the right blog for anyone who wants to find out about this topic. You realize so much its almost hard to argue with you (not that I actually would want…HaHa). You definitely put a new spin on a topic thats been written about for years. Great stuff, just great!
