Letter from Achsah to her brother Frank L. Lemont, November 2, 1862. In it she mostly speaks of the events at home and the continuing strain of the war on their family and how much it pains them that he can't be at home. She also mentions their plans to move and that their harvest moved from Greene down to Lewiston in accordance with their preemptive transition to life there.
