LETTER TO EARL: MOTHER

"it is too dangerous to get out with a machine" 3 x 3 inches, acrylic on photopaper.

The Letter to Earl now comes to a close, Mother signs off and adds a post script to let Earl know about the weather. When I finish with a series I can't help but feel some sense of loss over the characters that were developed. Now I am off to write some copy that will tie them together and give some indication of place and time so that I can make a small book. I am looking forward to continuing with my research on Earl, his family, the community and Lewisburg, Ohio. 

Letter to Earl continues:
I guess this is all for tonight. We send our love and best wishes.

Your folks,
Dad, Ralph and Mother

Monday morning. Every thing is a glare of ice every where and we will not go to Susie's funeral this afternoon as it is too dangerous to get out with a machine. I called Josie this morning and she says the horse is better and is trying to eat some they think she will get along alright now.
Your Mother
