Dear Nephew
We recd your very kind letter of Mar 9d and owe you an appology for not answering sooner Glad to hear about your brothers and sisters, but it is strange you do not tell us something about your father. He is the same age as myself with a few months as we were together a great deal in the early part of my married life, but I had not heard anything of him for a number of years. Olin and Thom as your uncles were down in Ga a few years ago and visited us in Kansas after their returne north and from them I learned much of our relatives in the south and we have also had letter recently for Doc Newtons children in Texas and Ga- also cousins of yours I get letters from O.V. and Thomas in Mo. Quite oftenand they are expecting to pay us a visit soon
Page 2
Yes- we had herd about the big estate left to the unknown heirs of John Tyson in Australia and had our lawyer investigate it: but it seems they state that they have fond all the heirs and divaded and settled the estate- At lest that's the way our lawyer says However if our branch of the Tyson Family are related to the Australian of that name - the Courts would no doubt re open the case and redistribute it so far as possible- It is nevr too late to do good or right a wrong. Your uncle O.V. writes me you have done more towards unraveling the affair than any one else that he knows of and we would be more then glad to know how far you have gone and what you think of its merrits of the case
Your aunt says that she remembers her aunt Delitha Winston Tyson quite well. She visited her father (your grandfather) in Ga before we were married about 1848 or 50 and remained with them about a year and she thinks her home was in Augusta Ga at that time. Your cousins in Atlanta Ga seem to think the matter a fake- I guess no doubt about a man by name of John Tyson died in Australia and left a big estate to unknown heirs- and if he was your frandfathers brother or any relation- it can be established
Page 3
We have three children living. The oldest lives in Mead Co. Kansas Her husband F. M. Davis is or was till recently Co. Attorney. They have a large family of mostly boys. Our second is Mrs. Fredonia Clifford Adams resides in the city here, her husband being Manf. Jeweler for Montgomery Bros Our youngest Ada is wife of Chas. S. Gregory- a laundryman and lives cor. 10th and Santee St L.A. She has no children Fredonia has four bright boys. She is an invalid and we think has consumption altho she says she will get well. W live two miles out of town (south) on a hay ranch The last four years have been distressingly dry and we have had hard time to make expences- in fact have not made expenses. The City is growing fast and we hope the increase in the value of our land will to some extent make up for shortage in these dry years. We hope to hear from you as often as convenient
Direct to Compton Cal. Believe me

My dear Nephew
Your very welcom letter of the 25th ult. Came o.k.. We have mov'd into the city and built a six room cottage on a lot 50X l35. Have all the modern conveniances and are takeing the world easy.
No doubt you have heard a great deal about the Earth Quake. San franSis'co is nearly five hundred miles up the coast from us. There has never been any quakes here to speak of-and we here no uneasines about them. Was glad to hear that you and rest of our friends are OK Your father and I are about same age. Only a few months difference and I am truly glad to know he is well
Our youngest child-Ada- has been in invalid for two years. She had what ever used to call-white swelling and used crutches nearly two years
Page 2
She went to hospital had operation, and the doctors decided to cut her leg off-but her husband and her mother and I all objected so seriously that they abandoned that plan-and as a last resort we sent her to a Sanitorium up in the mountains. She came home recently-without crutches-and we think she will get well. We hope osAAs we don't know where aunt Mary and Aunt Winston live. Would like evr so much to here from them or about them
I get a letter occasionally from O.V. Tyson and from Thomas S.-but have nothing recently-for several months past.
I am much in doubt about that Australia fortune-altho have made but little effort to get at facts. Your Aunt Texas-thinks if there was any one with pluck-or back bone-to figure it out-that she and others of the family are the true heirs
Page 3
Your Aunt and Cousin Ada have gone up town and wanted me to answer your very kind letter-which in a hurried way I am trying to.
If you are single-I think you would improve your condition by coming to this Coast. Times are good here and have been for a number of years. Mechanics of all kinds get good pay-Carpenters from 3 to 450 per day-owing to their ability. Room and board 3 ½ to 5 per week. Plenty of work. Not a very good place for strikers. Mostly open shop. Walking delegates and "business agents" not wanted

Write often and
Belive me yours Truly

My Dear Cousin Jack-
After so long a time I will endevor to answer you kind letter received some
time ago. I have just returned from up town and enjoyed the wlk so much, we
have just hada fine rain and the air is so refreshing and some what cold in
fact today is the coldest day we have had this winter early this morning
there was ice in the yard so you see it get cold in California some tines yet
it looks strange to look out of your window and see roses and green lawns and
then look up and seethe snow upon the mountians but I like
Page 2
California so much better than any place I have ever lived; mama says it
reminds her of Georgia. You wanted me to send you the names and address of my
sistersand their children I will inclose them on a sepperate paper I know
(you might say) nothing about mama's people only Uncle Tom and Uncle Olen who
as you know live in Mo., the book of the different "Generations" of Tyson no
doubt must be of intrest and very like of value and if you could do so would
be glad if you could sent it for a copy as it would be of great value to mama.
I do so want mama to go South before she dies but am afraid she never will,
she is now
Page 3
Sixty four years old but very active for her age. You are a few yers older
than I am if you are past thirty my husband is quite bald but is only 33
years old, he says it is from living with such a little torrent" as I am, he
is very sedate and quiet while I am all "go" and live for the enjoyment there
is in life not but I have my serious moments and realize that life is by no
means all the fun and play but I try to look always at the bright side and in
so doing get a greatdeal of pleasureout of life. You wanted to know what
wages a carpenter got per day I think from $2.50 to $4.00 noing to what they
do. There seems to be a scarsety of help here
Page 4
Among the capenters Los Angeles is having a "boom" it now numbers over
155000and people are coming all the time rents are very high. You cannot get
a modren five room cottage under $25.00 and as high as $40.00 a month, flats
are quite high also we are in a flat but in the spring will either buy or rent
a cottage if rents go down We pay %15.00 for three rooms and a pantry large
enough for my gas range. And think it cheap, we live in easy walking distance
of town about ten blocks in a very nice locality but I do not like a flat. I
tell you what to do. You come out here and build a
Page 5
House for us and I will try and find you a little sweet heart but I cannot
promise that she will have money that is something we all are after, you are
right there is a scaresity (of nice girls now days they all seem so forward
and no account but I have a very dear little friend she is not young, I think
she is nearly thirty but very young looking and very nice not goody good) who
lives in Mo. That would be the right one for you she is jolly about my size
(under size) dark hair and eyes her name is Theresa Pryor, she live in Reeds
Mo. Or get her mail there in care of Free alel.#I (Rural) she is really a very
dear girl and I have known her all my
Page 6
Life, if you want me to I will give you a letter of intreduction and you can
correspond with her, perhaps though you don't approve of such things. You
speak about your picture being taken in the Fire Company did you use to
belong to the Hose Co, there is one of the Company located in the block noth
of here I have not gone up yet to have my pictures taken but will in the near
future and will send you one so don't forget so send me one of your soon.
There must be a large mixed family of you all togeather, how do you manage to
not get mixed I don't know what we would do if we had a
Page 7
Large family we hve been married ten years in May and when I want to go any
place I never have any one to consult but myself and Chas. The same way, we
usually got out togeather Monday is his Lodge night Tuesday mine and Sat.
afternoon I always go to the Theater We get along like Comrades never have
any words over going out at night, Chas is very good about staying home unless
I go with him. He is at the present time driving a Laundry Route. He owns it
himself and does very well usually makes from $90.00 to as high as $125.00 a
Page 8
But living is very high here and eats up nearly everything a person makes.
Mama and papa are both well. I am feeling fine have gained five lbs in a
little over a month hope I will keep on getting fleshy for I need about ten
more pounds. Well no doubt you are tired of reading this so I will close.
Plese do not wait so long as I did before answering. Excuse all wrons and
Your loving COY.
