Try to remember Bill, hell and houston both begin with a H

April 19, 1875
Houston, Texas

Dear Bill,
I have been here for 2 months now and think this to be a bad place for any kind of shop that you have in mind. Only a fool would build here.

We are leaving here a week from today so don't reply to my letter. Even Edna don't like it because of the climate. I don't like it because its to far from home. Try to remember Bill, hell and houston both begin with a h.

Your friend -
Albert & family
Houston


some days I couldn't agree more.

Love,
M

  1. I dig the old letters. And you couldn't agree more? Hang in there; it'll soon be hurricane season. Cheers Michelle!!

  2. And history. History begins with an H.
    Not sure what that means...
    Love the old letters. And the irony.

  3. And yet it's the single largest metropolitan area in the state.

    I'm a Dallas girl, so I don't get it either. It's damn humid and crowded down there.

  4. Did they move onto Colorado? I wonder. Or just up into the panhandle?

  5. Oh my, that's hilarious!! "Don't bother writin' back 'cause we're outta here!" And it's only April and not even hurricane season, which also begins with an "H". The "J" hurricane this year is Julia :-)

  6. My grandma was from outside of Houston. Me? I have never been in Texas at all.
