Beautiful letter From Craig Bara, historian and archivist

 This is a heartfelt letter, on November 22, 2015, from a kindred spirit to me......
 I am enchanted.

Dear Miss Barada,

I live in Ohio but have had the pleasure of hearing so many wonderful things about you.

My friend Jo-Ellen Tramontana has been to "Hearthside" and told me about you and gave me a snapshot of you that I keep in my photo album. She said that if and when I make it back to RI, she will take me there and hope I will be able to meet you.

Lady Estelle, I wanted to know if I could acquire your autograph on a Hearthside brochure or whatever is the most convenient for you?

I had hoped to visit Jo-Ellen and Chuck this year but I had a brain tumor removed in April and it has taken much longer to recuperate.
But I know God is there so I have faith that I will be well again.

Please let me know how I should proceed?

I will gladly pay you or make a donation to Hearthside.

I wish you all the best and look forward to hearing from you.

With Sincere Gratitude,
Craig
