Miss Wilhelmina Tate
No Date (Perhaps middle of June, 1902)
Would you like to go to Lecture to-night? If so and you have not objections, why I
certainly would enjoy your inspiring company.
T. Ellison Simpson*
Note: This invitation may have been written to Wilhelmina while she was working at Thornwell Orphanage, Clinton, South Carolina.
A letter dated June 18, 1902 written from her mother Jenny, "I am so afraid you are over working your self", suggests she may
been ill. Simpson's note was addressed to "Infirmary".
*T. Ellison Simpson was born 1879 in Fairfield County, South Carolina to John A. & M. J. Simpson.
