In October Aida Austin, in Eldred, wrote her brother Lon, in New York City. Aida, age 15, at some point started corresponding with Chester, who replied to her, as we will read in future posts.

October 29, 1876
Dear Brother Lon,
I have got the sweetest teacher ever was.

She has gone to the Centennial. I guess she will be back on Monday. I hope so. She went on Friday after school.

Lon, do come down. Write and tell me you will come as soon as Tom gets you a place. Please do. Don’t stay there any longer, but come as soon as you can.

Please write soon and tell me all the news.

Good bye, your ever true and loving sister, Aida
