Summary
This collection contains an October 27, 1926 handwritten letter sent by Ruth Wade Mood to Dr. Sidney C. Hoffman of Indianapolis, Indiana and written on her husband's business letterhead for Motion Picture Outfits for School, Church and Farm Bureau. The letter was sent along with an August 1, 1913 promissory note signed by Hoffman who agreed to pay Virgil Mood $25.00 by August 1, 1915. Mrs. Mood's letter asks if the note "slipped" his memory and that they had "lost so much in the tornado". This comment is most likely referring to the Tri-County Tornado of 1925 which destroyed a large part of Princeton, Indiana
