Dear Mrs. Cousin,
My name is Susan Johnston. My father, John Smith, is your great uncle, son of
John James Smith. I have been working on the Smith family line and would like
further information on your father's family. I would appreciate any help you
might be able to give and am enclosing a few questions about your father, James
Smith, on a separate page. If you know any of the requested information, please
answer on that page and return it to me in the enclosed envelope.
If you have any other information you would like to share, I would be happy to
pay any extra postage necessary, and will of course pay for any copies that need to
be made. I have quite a lot of information about the John James Smith family and
would be happy to exchange information with you, if you are interested.
Thank you very much for your help. I will look forward to hearing from
