Letters, 1867

 File — Box: 1, Folder: 4

Scope and Contents

This folder includes a letter from Pheobe's sister, Becca and letters that discuss Frank and Pheobe's personal correspondence, family and friend sickness updates and each individual's travels. In a letter dated January 21, 1867, Frank recants his earlier wishes to be released from the pair's engagement and asks Pheobe again to marry him. She replies in a later letter with the simple phrase: "I feel that I cant trust myself to write you a long letter now, but will give you the reply that Gen’l Jackson sent to Santa Anna. “If he wants me, let him come and take me." The pair married in February 1867.
