Letter by a Scottish immigrant to her brother-in-law, 1919 [transcription]
Mary Ellen Wilkinson emigrated from
Scotland to Patagonia some time before 1900. After her husband
Hugh MacLean died, leaving her with five children, she remarried
(to William Henry Betts) and settled in Santa Cruz province. The

Washington State, USA.
