Description

Letter from Frank L. Lemont to his mother J.S. Lemont, October 24, 1862. In it he tells her of his current situation returning to the regiment since he was wounded and went home on leave, and that his standing remains the same as it had when he left, perhaps even stronger because of his trials. He also encourages his mother to stay strong in such a hard time with her husband (his father) now deceased and the estate needing to be dealt with.
