September 1, 1955

Here is a letter written to my Father (Robert “Bob” Wilkinson) regarding a Stauffer family history book he was purchasing from someone in newport news. I assume that he bought this book for his mother (Joanna Stouffer Wilkinson). He was 16 years old when this letter was written. Note: $4.09 in 1955 would be equivalent to¬†$35.67 today (2015). A bit pricey for a used book.

The book is called Records of the Proceedings of the John Stauffer Memorial Association, 1911. The whole book is available online.
