    Notes 
    • Letter between Josephine W McKay and Fannie Jane McEwing

      "Corvallis, Benton Co. Oregon
      June 21, 1885

      Mrs. Fanny McKay [Fannie Jane McEwing]
      Dear Sister:
      I received your letter last night and was very glad to hear from you and to hear that you were all well as this leaves me. I received a letter from Lilly [Lily McKay], Tilla [Mathilda McKay], and Flora [Flora Violet McKay] last night and they were all right.

      We had a great deal of rain lately and some of the farmers are complaining of the rust but I don't think that the rust is very bad yet. Times are very dull here now and not much going on at all. They are not going to have any celebration here on the 4th of July. They have quite a picnic here yesterday there were two hundred Editors from Iowa here, and they gave them quite a reception it cost Corvallis about $500. I would have liked to go to the picnic but I did not like to dismiss school on account of it. My school will be out in three weeks and then I am going to the printing office to learn typesetting. It won't cost me anything to learn it for I can work for my board if I wish. And I would rather do that and save money. In regard to houses here in Corvallis it is hard to get a house to rent at any price for there are only a few houses in town to rent and they ask awful high rent for them. Most of the people own their houses and last winter a great many of the railroad men had to board there families out for they could not get any house to rent. But Pa said last winter when we came here that he was offered a house down at the Alsea Valley if he wanted it for nothing. But the roads were so bad at the time that we could not get down or we would have taken it. Bill must have had quite a walk, but the old man Hubbard is having a great time preaching down at the Bay. Tilla says they make awful fun of him and use his words for Bywords and the old man thinks he is converting them. I hope you folks will not give up the idea of coming to Oregon. I think Allen's will come too before long. Be sure to write soon.
      With my love to all. I remain your loving sister.
