Finding aid only for Manuscripts Small Collection 3319. Letter, 27 February 1909, of Alice E. Cunningham, Louisville, Kentucky, to her cousin Earle Cunningham. The letter is addressed to Georgia, but Earle appears to be in Florida. Alice teases him with a description of a “Southern beauty” visiting her home and asks him to write with news of his “numerous love affairs” with Southern girls. She also describes attending a church social “overrun” with seminary students attracted by the food, a Martha Washington Tea held by her Young Ladies Society, and a show at Louisville’s Mary Anderson Theater. The envelope bears a copied notice about Earle’s representation of the Packard Land Company in Pensacola, Florida.
