Letter from Samuel R. Lemont to his son Frank L. Lemont, June 24, 1862. In it he remarks that he and the family are concerned since Frank had not written for a while, including that their health is good as usual and that they constantly pray for his safety, especially because they are fearful that he and his unit engaged in a fierce battle. He also mentions the weather back in Maine and the state of their grass crop.
