    Letters from M A Mohr to Harry B Smith July 20, 1886 and August 15, 1886
    July 20, 1886, concerned about the Limekiln Club; founding the city of Ponca, Nebraska; lonsome without Lou and the children; was going to send letter with a letter to Ada; expressed concerns for Harry's mothers health; wants Harry to see "my people".

    August 15, 1886, had a short letter from his wife, says she can't find time to write him. Hopes to be home shortly. Went to Ionia. Since Mrs Conner and myself has had ours cut about half the women in town have short hair. Enjoying watermelon from Georgia now from the countryside by the wagon loads; they sell for 40 cents apiece for the best; butter down to 5 to 7 cents now at 10 cents; apples are plenty and cheap. Where is Nettie now? A minister in Sioux City shot. Clara and Ira have quite a nice place-apples were taken

    Note: M.A Mohr may be Martin Mohr who had a younger brother John based on 1880 census Manchester Iowa. John A Mohr from Manchester Iowa came Ponca in 1881; Ponca was formed in 1886. Was mayor 1893-94. Became a mortician and the Mohr Funeral Home is still operating today in Ponca, Nebraska.
