Yesterday, I told the story of Emma Leigh, the daughter of “Beaver” Dick Leigh and her encounter with Teddy Roosevelt. “Beaver” Dick was a friend of my great grandmother, Emma Just and he had named his Emma after my Emma.
After telling that story a couple of years ago, I ran across a postcard to “my” Emma from Rose, Emma Leigh’s older sister. It’s a photo postcard of Rose, who apparently went by Rosie. The spelling in the message wasn’t great, but the intent was clear. It was postmarked December 2, 1912. I include it here as something of a postscript to the earlier story.
