In this letter Frank tries to dissuade his granddaughter from smoking and warns her of the dangers of tobacco, citing medical authorities and personal experience. The message presents an unusual perspective for the time in which it was written.
This brief message was sent after the birth of the Boykins' first great-grandchild. In it, Frank expresses his happiness and congratulates the new parents. Apparently, this is a transcription of a telegram.
