Call Number: RH MS P285

Overview

This collection of letters was apparently written by two sisters living in Lawrence from 1859 to sometime after 1863. The letters are written to the two women's mother and brother who lived in Westinfield, Connecticut about events in Lawrence prior to and during the Civil War. The letters are arranged chronologically. Two letters dated 1859 and 1881 from two different attorney's are filed together, separate from the main body of correspondence.
