Other Notes: Aug.6,1992 Dear Mrs. Farmer - This quilt is named "Indian Feather", as best I can remember. It belonged to my mother-in-law, Mrs. O>J> Morrison, and was given to her by her grandmother. The day of June __, 188_, is stitched in - I've seen it - but I'm too ill right now to look. Maybe you can. By the way, is there anyone in your group who could mend the binding and some of the feathers? Good luck on your show, Yours truly-
