“Attached is a picture of Mary High.  My mother had a  picture of her grandmother and grandfather in her  locket.  I will have to get it later and see what if I can scan those. Also attached is a picture of John taken at Niagara Falls.  The original picture was a souvenir postcard and he was with his son.  I cropped their faces individually a long time ago.  I don’t know the date.  My mother cut that part off.  I’ll scan the original and send it later. Also attached is Mary’s church card.”
