Description

Letter from Frank L. Lemont to his mother J.S. Lemont, October 13, 1862. In it he updates her on his current situation returning to his regiment after staying with her for a short time (more than likely keeping her company in such a hard time with his father being ill) including that he was well received by his comrades in the 5th Maine upon his return and that his mental state has improved greatly knowing this. Frank also discusses his emotions and feelings having to leave his mother yet he admits his duty is penultimate.
