Letter to Oscar Clement from Arthur with picture of Josephus Manson Smith

“Oscar, I’m sending you a picture of your Grandfather – (cousin Joe Smith)  He lived with my Grandmother at the time the picture was made.  My mother carded the rolls & spun the thread and wove the cloth & made the suit of clothes he wore to have the picture made.  We loved cousin Joe & I thought you might like the picture.  It was made before the Civil War.  Lots of love.  Cousin Auther(?)”

This is the picture of Josephus Manson Smith that was attached.

      Off the top of my head, I am not sure. It can be tricky finding cousins. The person who sent me the photo attached that transcription with the letter.
