From the Files of Marguerite Cook Clark: Christmas Greetings - 1916

This Christmas greeting was sent to Laura Martin of Ringgold, Bienville Parish, Louisiana from Kate Stewart of Arcadia in Bienville Parish on December 21, 1916. Laura and Kate were first cousins.

Laura was
the daughter of Joseph Brown Bryan and Kate was the daughter of Catharine Amanda Bryan Watts. 

Joseph and Catharine were children of Reddick and Elizabeth Regan Bryan.

Kate's Christmas message is transcribed below.

My Dear Cousin,

Your same cousin Kate Stewart
