My grandmother, Agnes Stewart Holder, a native of New Orleans, wrote these letters in about 1926 through 1928 to my father, Oscar Holder, when he was a student at boarding school. In the letters we see an intelligent and curious woman who loved her family and who kept alive her warm connections with her extended family. I have donated these letters to The Historic New Orleans Collection.
