Letter from Frank L. Lemont to his mother J.S. Lemont, July 29, 1862. Frank speaks of his misgivings about being wounded and desire to be well and free to move about again, especially with turmoil at home, noted by the mention of his father being ill. Along these lines he mentions as well that he will do everything in his power to return home, even deserting the army or sending in his resignation.
