A Letter from Uncle Ted...

Jose W. Fenderson was born in Parsonsfield March 30, 1914 and died January 20, 2013 at the age of 98.  He was the only child of Frank D. and Laura (Jose) Fenderson.  Frank Fenderson was a well-known lawyer in the area.  Jose graduated from Hebron Academy, attended Cornell Law School and served in the U.S. Navy during World War II.  He passed the Maine Bar exam in 1941 and practiced law in Sanford for many years.  He never married.  The following letter from his Uncle Ted was sent to him March 18, 1925 when he was 11 years old.  It included these delightful drawings and reads as follows:


Dear Jose
    You tell your father that I am going
to try and get up to see
him in a week or so.
    I want to see you drive
those oxen too.  I am pretty
proud of you for doing so
many things.  I guess you can
drive them a lot better than
I can draw them.
Love to you all
Uncle Ted
