Editor's Note:
  White is too common a name and Mabel was fairly popular in the era as well so I cannot identify who Mabel (Mable) and Verna are to Allen.  I am guessing they are sisters because for quite sometime there has been a round robin approach to letter writing among them.  Mabel writes Allen and he writes Verna.  Verna writes Allen and he writes Mabel and so on.  I already believed they weren't local because he has never been "riding" with them.  But here today he puts Mabel on the train so he actually sees her upon occasion.  Perhaps they had relatives in town.  I'm wondering now if there is a connection to his "grandma" Sarah Mason.  Maybe they are Lyman Mason's grandchildren.  Though again, I can't find any children of his.  Suggestions welcome.  Diana has drawn a blank as well.
