Scope and Contents

Four complete letters and two fragments written to Jennie from William. Two letters and at least one fragment were written between 1853 and about 1856 from Chicago, Illinois. They are mainly love notes with family news, but mention in passing immigrants and Cassius M. Clay. The two later letters were written in Lynchburg, Virginia after the couple's marriage. The July 27, 1863 letter discusses possible upcoming battles and the high prices of food during the Civil War.

Dates: 1853 - 1863
