Transcript of a manuscript sent by Etta DEVIN Parker to Irene F. Devin postmarked Apr. 8, 1940. This manuscript appears to be a precursor to Dessa DEVIN Hofstetter's manuscript. It has one notation by D.H. which may mean Dessa was the compilier of this manuscript.

This is a true transcript except to combine hyphenated words. A couple of corrections to years have been inserted with square brackets. Other than these additions, all spelling and puncuation is left as in the manuscript. Transcribed by David Devin 22.Dec.2010 from a photocopy of the manuscript. The photocopy was made from the copy sent to Irene F. Devin which is currently in the files owned by Carl G. Devin.
