Dear. Mrs. Core:
Glad to hear from you and I
know how busy a "farmer" is at this time
of year. I've lived on farm all my life, and
until the labor conditions got so bad, I ran
my farm and cattle, but at my age, I just
cannot do it. Sold cattle and am renting
my farm, so my only worry is seeing how
the poor farmers are having to contend with
rains--we plant cotton and so beans on
most of the farms. A few are planting rice
and one adjoins my farm. I get money
rent in advance, but still want to see
them make money.
You mention the Mallet's as being
up at A.P. They were like all these early
settlers, all over, where ever there were
settlers, many in south La.
Paul Perthuis was from our lie
of Perthuis, and he married Angelique LePine
in south La. around Thibodeaux, there
are lots of LePines, and Perthuis around that
area. Married St. Par. 1778.
