Title ALS to Florence Miller from Allan W. Moore, both Hoboken residents, August 13, 1915.
Object Name Letter
Catalog Number 2009.016.0010
Collection Papers of Florence G. Miller & Family
Credit Gift of Charles J. Tramer & Frank Balogh.
Scope & Content Autograph letter signed to Florence [Miller] from Allan W. Moore, August 13, 1915. Single leaf of Moore's law office letterhead (Allan W. Moore, Counselor at Law, One Exchange Place, Jersey City, N.J.), 8-1-2" x 11" high; written on front only; fold marks. Text is transcribed in notes.

From the family papers of Florence Miller.

Content is lighthearted comments about his joining her in Atlantic City tomorrow, her mother, a Mrs. Coyle and other people joining them.

Florence Miller lived at 716 Garden St., Hoboken, (age 24 at this date) and Moore lived at 1227 Garden St., Hoboken. Miller was Moore's fiancee when he died ca. April 10, 1919 (a June wedding had been scheduled.) It has not been established when they became engaged, but the content of this letter suggests that they were involved in a courtship at this time.

The folds of the letterhead suggests that it was sent in small envelope rather than a letter-size business envelope (none is present) which makes it likely that he wrote and mailed this from his Garden Street address. Whether he was still in practice in Jersey City at this date has not been established.

Dear Florence!

Excuse the above advertisement, this is all the letter paper that I possess. Will be on train to-morrow morning getting in Atlantic City about 1:15 PM. Have a good lunch prepared and tell Mrs. Kenton Hall to make some tasty dessert.

I was talking to your mother [Mrs. Frank P. Markey] this morning and after looking all over the house she came to the conclusion that you had your tennis raquet with you. She also told me to say that Mrs. Coyle is very well and often speaks of you. Hire as small a band as possible to greet me to-morrow. You know how I hate ostentation and display.

John & his wife are coming next Tuesday I believe and John wants a cool room with no mosquitoes and southern exposure. I suggested putting his feet out the window.

Be a good little girl and don't get your feet wet while in bathing.

So long George till to-morrow. As [William Jennings?] Bryan said to [Woodrow?] Wilson 'God Bless Mrs. Coyle.'

Yours,

Allan
