					Thanksgiving Day 1897
					Grace Church Rectory,
					Morganton, N.C.
My dear Miss Wilhelmina:
	Allow me to congratulate you on your success. Thought the pumpkin pie was the best 
of any kind I have had for years. Even better than Mrs. McDowell's and Miss Cora Wilson's, 
and that is saying a great deal. It would not have been Thanksgiving Day to me without the 
pumpkin pie. Thank you so much for your very kind thought.
	Hoping to see you soon to thank you in person, and wishing you all happiness on this 
Thanksgiving Day.
				I am yours very sincerely
				    Churchill Satterlee
