Letter January 12, 1950, Eula Baird Robertson to her granddaughter Hazel ("Totsy")
Thurs. Jan. 12 1950
My Dear Totsy Hugo & Diana
I received your letter Mon. and would have ans. sooner but it has been so dark I couldn't see. It has been thick cloudy & drizzley all but Tues. & I washed moped and ironed that day. I know you have plenty to do with Diana to look after & all the washing to do. I know you have your hands full. You need help besides Hugo. Opal wrote me not to worry about you. Said Hugo was good to you. I don't care how good a man may be to you you still need some help that a man can't do such as washing & you with a baby to look after. I know you have your hands full. I don't expect you to write to me often for I know you can't.
I am lonesome for you. I wish I lived close to you. I could watch the baby while you wash. I know I could do that much. I know you have too much to do. Fred is sick. He had temperature yesterday but is clear of fever this morn. I have been over there to see.
There has been several death. But you don't know any of the people here. So I won't take the time to tell you. The reason I don't go to Opal's is because I hate to leave home in bad weather & I'm looking for Cladyne & children down here. She said she was coming before she went overseas. Bill & Mel came by here. Mel said she might have made everybody mad before she left. Said you looked bad to her. Said your color was of a greenish cast which bothered me a lot. I worry about you a lot. I know Opal does a lot. Totsy write when you find time. I know that won't be often. Lots of Love from
