Postcard: 9 September 1910

To Mrs. Seba L. Linn from E. Johnson

Sept 9th

Dear Seba and all.
Perhaps you will be informed by telegraph before this reaches you, of the saddest auto accident relating to your family in which Pet Heyworth was instantly killed, last night on returning from the fair: about 6 o'clock, 3 miles south at the crossing where they struck the train. 2 others seriously injured. Hiram and Mr. Datus Clark little injured. I thought you could break it easier to the rest of the family if not informed before this. Hattie will take it hardest as she had so enjoyed her visit. I am writing this in a hurry but fear others are in such trouble, would wait till later. It has been such a terrible shock. Diah is improving slowly. In haste E. Johnson.
