Description

Letter from J.S. Lemont to her son Frank L. Lemont, January 28, 1863. In it she relates the latest goings on at home and the state of the family, mostly that she longs to have her son home and wonders what should be done about the farm, proposing that perhaps renting the house in Lewiston might provide some supplemental income for them to live on while they prepare for beginning planting again in the summer.
