Keturah Taylor Parke Letter to Her Friend “Josie” ~ 1854

This is a letter written by Charles Edward Cranston’s wife, Keturah Taylor Parke, to her friend Josephine Topham in 1854. She describes the day beautifully and expresses her wishes that Josie does well in her studies. This letter was written BEFORE her marriage to Charles Edward Cranston. I can’t be certain, but I think that Josephine Park Cranston was named after Keturah’s friend, Josie.
