Biographical/Historical note

Daughter, Julia, is away at school in Oxford, Ohio, and writes to her mother in Illinois and Indiana respectively. While Julia does not write her last name, it is inferred from the fact that she is writing to her mother, Mrs. Hansicker, that her surname is also Hansicker. The 1870 Illinois census corroborated this fact.
