With history research, there are always new things to discover and the internet has made many of those discoveries easier than ever. Recently, when I was looking for something completely unrelated, I stumbled upon a description for the Edgar Mills papers at the California State Library. Part of the collection included correspondence with his brother, D.O. Mills, and his nephew, Ogden Mills. The description also mentioned that the correspondence included a discussion of Ogden's engagement to Ruth Livingston. Since we know very little about their courtship and marriage, I was very excited by the prospect of reading these letters. Keep reading to see what I found!
