Description

This letter is from Augusta (Lemont?) to her cousin Frank L. Lemont, May 3, 1862. In it she comments on the tragedy of the war and that, though it is a necessity, it is certainly too painful and dreadful an event to take any kind of pleasure in seeing the country torn asunder. She also covers some of the events in the community and the changing of the season allowing many of them to enjoy the outdoors. In that letter she also included a pressed May-Flower.
