Old Verona School, 1914

Nov. 5, 1914, to Mr. Estill Stewart, Jonesville, Ky, “Rec'd your card and was indeed glad to hear from you. I thought possibly you might enjoy a picture of the building in which you saw so many “spooks.”  You must come up to Verona again soon.  My room is marked with the x.  Your friend, Mattie”
