New Orleans. Louisiana January 4, 1889 to Hotel Dieu, New Orleans, Louisiana
Thomas O’Kelly to his sister- in-law Georgiana Van Emburgh O’Kelly
Dear Georgie, this package has just arrived, and in very bad shape. You must excuse Boots about not coming out, she has been laid up all the week with her tooth and when she had it pulled it was too late to come out to see you. I wish you a happy and healthy New Year.
