Mrs. Frank Robertson Writes from Phoenix, 1912

We thought you might want a break from the cold weather, and Mrs. Frank Robertson was kind enough to provide us with one in the form of this letter printed in the January 18, 1912 edition of the Skidmore New Era (Skidmore, Missouri), page 9:

A Letter from Arizona.

Mrs. Frank Robertson, who left Skidmore about the first of January for Phoenix, Arizona, writes that she finds the climate very temperate there.  mrs. Robertson went there for her health and intends to make her home there if it agrees with her.  She is so well satisfied now that she has ordered The New Era to be changed to that address and will stay there this winter at least.

She says that while she is writing she is sitting out in the yard without wraps and feels quite comfortable.  The grass is quite green and the orange trees are hanging with tempting ripe fruit.  She has nice rooms, two blocks from the state capitol.

Mrs. Robertson thinks the climate there will restore her health, and that it is the best place she knows of for those who have weak lungs and cannot work.  She became a booster for Arizona and thinks that people wanting fruit farms would do well to come there, as good orange lands can be had within twelve miles of Phoenix at reasonable prices.  She will gladly answer any letters from friends inquiring of the country.

Her address is:  Mrs. Frank Robertson, 1631 West Wash. St., Phoenix, Arizona.
