    LETTER TO SISTER-IN-LAW JULIA SUSAN SCHWARZ BROOK
    WIFE OF HIS BROTHER, JAMES SEDDON BROOK
    AUG. 23, 1955
    SYRACUSE WY.

    Dear Sister Jewel,
    Your welcome letter arrived of 19/55, and I will try to give you the information to the best of my memory.
    First, I don't know Grand-dad's birthplace other than Leeds, England, where I heard said Dad came from, where he was born. Mother came from Manchester. Her name was Fletcher. She was buried in St. Mary's Cemetery near Somersville, N. Y. Find enclosed card.

    I can think better than I can write, and I hope you can make it out. I am surprised at myself. I am not sick outside of a cold. It came on about the time of the heat; I don't do much around the house, I feel too unsteady.

    Hurricane Hazel blew down my white lilac bush, and the one before took my rambling rose down the toilet, broke the fornuse wind bad last year. George said he had one for me. I expect him sometime around Labor Day.

    I don't go out anymore. The people are using later make machines, but I am getting by on 85. I could say a lot more, but what's the use? I was 75 day after Xmass, so what have I to kid about, it seems everything goes wrong.

    Well, enough blues. About Emma, I wrote to her son when Tom died and asked to be excused going there. I could not leave Mary, she was helpless and I could not get anyone to be with her. So, it was the last I heard from them. I don't think my thinking was wrong in what I did, but I have been making mistakes ever since Mary passed on. I could say a lot of mistakes. I did, but it's enough to think I did not intend to.

    I thought you could not read my last letter, and I did not blame you for not writing, and I am thankful for your remembering me. I must say I would rather hear from you than all but George. I hope you did not get any serious damage from the last hurricane and also, that I am sorry I could not give you more information than I did. I will try to tell you a story in the near future, what Grandmother told me about the money coming to her. Her name was Morris. Is the Morris Marine Engine Co. still operating next to Cramp? My Grand Uncle was one of the firm, but they don't know I am alive. I get dizzy when I write, so I will let it go until I write again.

    Hoping your arthritis is much better. I must close now. I don't think any more. Hoping the little information I gave you will be helpful. I will try to find out if George knows any more. He might be able to tell me something again. I must close.

    With Love,
    Ed
