Foster Family Letters
Nelva’s letters consist almost entirely of letters written to her mother and father about the condition of her brother, Conrad (or Allen, as he signs his letters). These letters were sent from Shreveport, Louisiana and Rochester, Minnesota, and they detail the days spent in the hospital while she was with her brother. Nelva wrote letters to her parents almost every day while staying in Rochester.
