582. Emilie Todd Helm to Jesse W. Weik?.
Elizabethtown Ky. [1887 — 89?]
I belive I have given you all the information you ask for — I think you could perhaps get an autograph from Mrs Edwards — I cannot consent to part with mine — If there is any other information you desire that I can give you of course it will give me pleasure to give it to you — Enclosed you will find some printed matter that you can perhaps use — Please return it to me as I have taken them from the book I am making for my Son & would not like to lose them —
E T Helm

2. Elizabeth Todd Edwards, wife of Ninian W. Edwards.
