WILDER, LAURA INGALLS. 1867-1957.

Wilder writes a note to a young fan: "I am the only one of my family living. / Mary Power, Cap Garland and Ida Brown died years ago and I have lost track of the others in my stories." On the circular, Wilder has identified an early picture of herself at 17, and another at 70. She adds, "We have sold the farm but will live in the old farm house."
