Description

Letter from J.S. Lemont to her son Frank L. Lemont, January 3, 1863. In it she imparts rather depressing news from home and about the war especially about death and sickness plaguing their community. She desperately wishes the war would end so her son might come home and be with them but she knows that he has to make those decisions for himself.

Taken from the Paul W. Bean Collection, Box no. 277, f.8
