1864 Letters

September 21, 1864 letter to Luke Keith from Sarah Keith

September 21, 1864

To: Charles Luke Keith Jr., Omro, WI

From: Sarah Keith, Galesburg, MI

Sarah is updating her husband, Luke, on the affairs of the farm while he is traveling in Wisconsin selling bed bottoms. Sarah visited Luke’s father to see how he was doing. “Father is a striping off the leaves and feeding them to the cattle. He said Ethan might have all he could pick.” Sarah’s Mother is looking for a letter from brother Robert, whom she is hoping will send her $20 dollars.
