MS-700: Katharine Wright Haskell Papers


In this letter, Katharine Wright writes to Henry Haskell reporting on her newly bought impression strip, a mutual friend's article in the Kansas City Star, and ruminating about disappointments in life, touching on some thoughts on religion, and other considerings. She also speaks of an illness that Orville had that caused him to miss a meeting with the Executive Committee of the National Advisory Committee. She invites Henry to a dinner party and discusses other guests that will be in attendance, particularly Agnes and Mary Osborn and her opinions about Ed Howe. She also includes other aspects of her daily life.
