Here is a bonus peek at one of the documents included in Little Lodges on the Prairie.
This page is from the minutes of the very first meeting at which Laura served as Worthy Matron of the Mansfield Chapter of the Order of the Eastern Star (an office which is explained in the book). Notice that it is also the meeting at which Almanzo petitioned to join the Order. Yes, he was not only a Freemason, but also an Eastern Star along with Laura.

There are many more such historical documents in the book. I'll be posting a few of them here in the next several weeks. If you are interested in seeing them, you might want to consider following the blog so you don't miss any. You can order the book from Amazon.com.
Do you like this? Do you have any questions about it? I'd love to hear your comments!
