Letter from Samuel R. Lemont to his son Frank L. Lemont, May 2, 1862. In it he remarks on the state of the mail and how so few letters are reaching his son and that there is little else to report on due to the great number of letters written in such a short period of time. Samuel also makes mention that a local newspaperman requested the use of Frank's letters in the Lewiston "Daley Journal" [sic].
