Description

Letter from J.S. Lemont to her son Frank L. Lemont, November 10, 1862. In it she relates the latest news from home about the family and the community, specifically that one George Merrill died from fever and that his family now mourns his death. Due to this, and the continued preparations for the move to Lewiston it has certainly acted as a bit of black cloud over the family.
