A Postcard From Margaret Read

Margaret Read died 15 years ago. 

Sugar still has a postcard that she sent him two years before she died. 


Dear Lawton,

Finally received the clipping just before I left Charleston. Thank you. Am in a busy social whirl up here. Lots of lunches and dinners & cocktail parties. Very cool today. Am enjoying the Inn but have to move to my godson’s on Thursday. Then the other godson will drive me home on Sunday the 29th. I hope to see you down at Edisto.

Love, Margaret

She was staying at the Highland Lake Inn and Country Retreat. They are still in business. 

Margaret thought that the house in the logo was the old Lawton House. We can’t find that in an online history. 

Maybe someone out in Internet World knows the answer?

    Fascinating. I don’t recall hearing about her god sons. Wonder who they are.
