Partial undated letter from Frank L. Lemont to his father Samuel R. Lemont, most likely written in 1862. In this incomplete correspondence he indicates his great concern for his mother's health and the trouble befalling his father's business, lamenting that he cannot be home for either. He mentions that Captain Daggett may return home and that should he do so, there are a few things he would be grateful if they sent them with Daggett upon his return.
