Alf had two men here last week to Dr. the horse he looks like he might get well now they cut the torn pieces of & cleaned him up so he looks so much better poor fellow he must of suffered an awful sight since he was hurt. Dave Woodruff had his thigh broke by a horse kicking him. There is considerable sickness in the valley there is so many got the Scarlet fevre. I think there is poor prospects for farmers next summer not a bit of snow yet it is almost like Spring. Alf has been trying to traid for a cow but hasent got one yet. Phebe is milking three cows & will have an other or two before long. One of the cows lost her calf a while back it died the night it was calved.

John sprained his ankle last night he did not go to conference so we did not see him we went will go tomorrow if all is well. Alf has gone to a lecture to night. We got a letter from Provo I am so thankful the boys went it may be the making of them poor henry says he cant learn I no how to pity him but if he dont learn mutch he can see where he has done rong. he said in his leter he has been drunk a few times but he sais he hope it will be the last I hope to God it will. The academy here is doing a good work. Our baby is so sweet she walks around by the chairs & she gabs a way all day & tries to talk. Uncle Rone [Maroni Fisher] is building him a new house he is now beginning to appreciate what father has done for him. Alf says when they are out he tells every (most) what a good half brother he has got. The weather here has been the same as there it is cold to night.

I dont think this is a healthy place Jim is comeplaining most all the time of not feeling well but he looks well his lungs may be affected but I think he would feel better if he would do more real work & father would feel better if he would not work so hard (and quit something else), Mrs. Southam Harry and Alice are down to Phebes they are well. Phebe isn’t quite able to go to conference. Ma it must be lonesome when the children are all gone to school I feel as lonesome to day without my little pet it seems as thou I shall never get over it; I dont believe I could of ever left home if Id of had an idea how a child was missed. There is know news so I will quit by sending love to all my eyes hurt I have written to the boys. Good by from Alf & Eleanor Anderson.

Life timeline of Eleanor Anderson (Hacking)

Eleanor Anderson (Hacking) was born on 5 Mar 1865
Eleanor Anderson (Hacking) was 15 years old when Thomas Edison demonstrates incandescent lighting to the public for the first time, in Menlo Park, New Jersey. Thomas Alva Edison was an American inventor and businessman, who has been described as America's greatest inventor. He developed many devices that greatly influenced life around the world, including the phonograph, the motion picture camera, and the long-lasting, practical electric light bulb. Dubbed "The Wizard of Menlo Park", he was one of the first inventors to apply the principles of mass production and large-scale teamwork to the process of invention, and is often credited with the creation of the first industrial research laboratory.
Eleanor Anderson (Hacking) was 23 years old when The Great Blizzard of 1888 struck the northeastern United States, producing snowdrifts in excess of 50 ft (15 m) and confining some people to their houses for up to a week. The Great Blizzard of 1888 or Great Blizzard of '88 was one of the most severe recorded blizzards in the history of the United States of America. The storm, referred to as the Great White Hurricane, paralyzed the East Coast from the Chesapeake Bay to Maine, as well as the Atlantic provinces of Canada. Snowfalls of 10 to 58 inches fell in parts of New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut, and sustained winds of more than 45 miles per hour (72 km/h) produced snowdrifts in excess of 50 feet (15 m). Railroads were shut down, and people were confined to their houses for up to a week. Railway and telegraph lines were disabled, and this provided the impetus to move these pieces of infrastructure underground. Emergency services were also affected.
Eleanor Anderson (Hacking) was 28 years old when Electrical engineer Nikola Tesla gives the first public demonstration of radio in St. Louis, Missouri. Nikola Tesla was a Serbian American inventor, electrical engineer, mechanical engineer, physicist, and futurist who is best known for his contributions to the design of the modern alternating current (AC) electricity supply system.
Eleanor Anderson (Hacking) was 39 years old when The Wright brothers make their first attempt to fly with the Wright Flyer at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. The Wright brothers, Orville and Wilbur, were two American aviators, engineers, inventors, and aviation pioneers who are generally credited with inventing, building, and flying the world's first successful airplane. They made the first controlled, sustained flight of a powered, heavier-than-air aircraft on December 17, 1903, four miles south of Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. In 1904–05 the brothers developed their flying machine into the first practical fixed-wing aircraft. Although not the first to build experimental aircraft, the Wright brothers were the first to invent aircraft controls that made fixed-wing powered flight possible.
Eleanor Anderson (Hacking) was 52 years old when Tsar Nicholas II of Russia was forced to abdicate in the February Revolution, ending three centuries of Romanov rule. Nicholas II or Nikolai II, known as Saint Nicholas in the Russian Orthodox Church, was the last Emperor of Russia, ruling from 1 November 1894 until his forced abdication on 15 March 1917. His reign saw the fall of the Russian Empire from one of the foremost great powers of the world to economic and military collapse. He was given the nickname Nicholas the Bloody or Vile Nicholas by his political adversaries due to the Khodynka Tragedy, anti-Semitic pogroms, Bloody Sunday, the violent suppression of the 1905 Russian Revolution, the executions of political opponents, and his perceived responsibility for the Russo-Japanese War (1904-1905). Soviet historians portray Nicholas as a weak and incompetent leader whose decisions led to military defeats and the deaths of millions of his subjects.
Eleanor Anderson (Hacking) was 64 years old when Babe Ruth becomes the first baseball player to hit 500 home runs in his career with a home run at League Park in Cleveland, Ohio. George Herman "Babe" Ruth Jr. was an American professional baseball player whose career in Major League Baseball (MLB) spanned 22 seasons, from 1914 through 1935. Nicknamed "The Bambino" and "The Sultan of Swat", he began his MLB career as a stellar left-handed pitcher for the Boston Red Sox, but achieved his greatest fame as a slugging outfielder for the New York Yankees. Ruth established many MLB batting records, including career home runs (714), runs batted in (RBIs) (2,213), bases on balls (2,062), slugging percentage (.690), and on-base plus slugging (OPS) (1.164); the latter two still stand as of 2018. Ruth is regarded as one of the greatest sports heroes in American culture and is considered by many to be the greatest baseball player of all time. In 1936, Ruth was elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame as one of its "first five" inaugural members.
Eleanor Anderson (Hacking) was 66 years old when Great Depression: In a State of the Union message, U.S. President Herbert Hoover proposes a $150 million (equivalent to $2,197,000,000 in 2017) public works program to help generate jobs and stimulate the economy. The Great Depression was a severe worldwide economic depression that took place mostly during the 1930s, beginning in the United States. The timing of the Great Depression varied across nations; in most countries it started in 1929 and lasted until the late-1930s. It was the longest, deepest, and most widespread depression of the 20th century. In the 21st century, the Great Depression is commonly used as an example of how far the world's economy can decline.
Eleanor Anderson (Hacking) died on 21 Nov 1949 at the age of 84
