This Was Luck

05 Dec

1916 NOV

Springfield, MA
Nov 1, 1916

From: William A Gray
To: Ruth (Barrell) Gray, 412 Beverly Road, Brooklyn, New York

My dearest Ruthy:

I changed my plans and am here tonight instead of going on to New Hampshire.
Spent the afternoon in Holyoke and was delivered to this hotel by Mr Wright of Am Writing
Paper Co in his auto.

The reason I am not going to Lincoln is because I met Mr Friske, the man I was
going to see, in the Grand Central Station before leaving for Boston last night and spent
an hour with him at the Belmont. This was luck.

Shall spend tomorrow going to Bellows Falls and will probably be back in New York
Friday morning and with you again Friday evening.

I hope everything is well with you and the kiddies and with much love and many
kisses I am as ever

    I’ve been reading your site for quite awhile now and must say how interesting every post has been.

      Thanks for reading! I have learned a few things about daily life a century ago from following Will on his business trips. Especially when it comes to travel and the mail 🙂
