Mail Order Bride


This is Linda Smith.

Who was she, you ask?

Well, for me, she was almost my grandmother.

Let me explain...

My mother used to tell me about a young woman my grandfather was writing to at one time. He invited her to come out to St. Vincent on the train, with what I can only surmise was either direct or indirect assumptions made by the young lady that it would lead to marriage. However, when the day came, my grandfather did not meet her!

I wonder what happened to Miss Smith?
