Kenneth and Margaret Went to the Wright's for Thanksgiving


Margaret wrote to her mother that she and Kenneth were going to the Wrights for Thanksgiving. She talks about the turkey they were going to eat. In those days turkey was still a luxury meat that you never had more than once or twice a year.
