  • Notes 
    • Her daughter Lucinda, on pointing to a photograph depicting Martha Salter with a big grin, remarked "she was always just like that; always pleasant."

      In a letter to her daughter Lucinda, Martha writes:
      "Dear Lucy: Just a few lines in answer to your letter and was very glad to hear from you. I hope tis will find you all well. [..] You said you wish I was with you; I wish I was. If I had knownthings was going to turn out like they have done I would of tried and gone back with you last summer but I could never travel now in my condition but please Lucy Dear don't say a word to thegirls when you write, I should never of come in the first place. I thought everything was going to be so rosy for me. I made a mistake now I have to put up with it, I really should of stayedin Cleveland and got the pension then it would not of cost the family very much as it is having someone to take care of me, takes more money living with one of the family wouldn't cost asmuch. Well Dear I hope Charlie likes his job. [..] Amy [presumably Amy Caroline Catherwood, another daughter] is looking for a apartment this week, she hasn't been able to go out with herfriends she has been with me."

      In a letter to her daughter Lucinda, written about a year before her own death, Martha writes:
      "...I thank you a lot for the dollar. I am going to get a new bread tin with it as I need one.
      I was glad to hear that Ray had been visiting you. You know it makes me happy when I know that he is all right. I hope he gets that job at the board of education and I hope he will try and gethis teeth fixed. I had a letter from him a few weeks ago.
      I hope you are all well as I am a little better but my legs are very tottery but I don't care as long as I can toddle around my own house. I haven't been able to go to the corner for 5 weeksbut I will be contended if I can manage to do with I have to do around the house. I have Florence to go to the store and when Teddy comes he can go for little things. I haven't seen Marion[Ruth Catherwood, another daughter] since she moved but that doesn't worry me. I have had a couple of letters from her. I wanted to stay at Ed's [possibly Edwin Follick, a son-in-law] mother'sa month but I couldn't stand the livestock around. And besides I had to plan all the meals and help with them so I had no rest and you couldn't lie down in the afternoon so many flies; shedone all the work, I couldn't.
      Did you go anywhere Labor Day? I didn't, I couldn't go besides I wasn't well enough to go picnicking. Ed, Esther [Agnes Catherwood, another daughter], Ida and Miss [unreadable] and Teddy[perhaps Edwin Duane Follick, Ed's son] went to Griffith Park, they had a picnic, I didn't want Esther to spoil her pleasure on account of me.
      Well, Dear, I wish you could get a house. Loads of love to you all as always, Mother.
      I wrote to Ray I hope he gets it. "
