The Editor of the Elizabeth Journal
Many thanks for your letter of Feb. 2nd and enclosures, which explain why I never received
In my letter of Dec 22nd I enclosed stamps and asked for copies of the paper
I am nevertheless very anxious to see the notice & likeness of Mr. Andrews...
Lucy Derrick Swindells
Carrie's Notes: This is an interesting note from Lucy to the editor of the Elizabeth Journal. Somehow there was a mixup in the previous notes sent requesting copies of an obituary or story written about the former Rector Mr. E. H. J. Andrews. It sounds as if the paper knew Lucy wrote both letters (which makes sense as her handwriting is so distinguished and recognizable) and sent all copies to her instead of passing them along to Mrs. Goodwin. Lucy's letters often show her ability to look past her own flaws in order to not accept blame for mistakes.
