Letter from Acsah Lemont and J.S. Lemont to Frank L. Lemont, December 7, 1862. The bulk of both entries deals mostly with their new life in Lewiston and the culture there. They also discuss the state of the family and the weather, specifically the health of J.S. Lemont regarding a sore on her arm that as yet had not healed by the time they sent this correspondence.
