|Rees Family Letters||Letter 14||1933||Laura Rees, Wales, to Catherine Rees Morgan, Kansas|
|This is the wife of the writer of the previous letter, Caleb Rees, who was the nephew of the Caleb Rees who wrote several earlier letters. Laura's husband thus was a first cousin, once removed, to Catherine. Caleb and Laura came to Hiawatha for a visit in 1933.||

Oct 9/33Dear Mrs Morgan
Caleb is away this week at Lampeter and I don't know whether he has yet written to thank you for the happy day you gave us at Hiawatha.
We arrived home on Sept 21st after a delightful holiday.
We counted that we had passed through twenty of the states so we hustled along in true American style.
|Mrs. Blake was Catherine's sister Margaret, who was 71.||
After leaving you we saw Mrs Blake (your sister) and had a lovely time with her. We then returned to Illinois, went to Chicago -- to Springfield, to a little place called Cedar falls (Iowa) then to Yellowstone Park which was wonderful then to Fargo (N. Dak) then Toronto, Montreal Quebec & home. I hope you are all well. Please remeber me to your niece & her son & daughter and also to your son & his wife. We should so much like to see some of you here. Please remember there is a very warm welcome to you all & we will take you in comfort to see all the old places in Pembrokeshire without keeping you in any cold railway stations--. We'll even meet you at the boat if you'll tell us when you're coming
Meanwhile my fondest love to all
I forgot to thank you for the "Hiawatha Daily World" which we received safely -- That was a very nice paragraph to give us
