1865 Letters

August 13, 1865 letter to Sarah Keith from Luke Keith

August 13, 1865

To: Sarah Keith 

From: Charles Luke Keith Jr., Omro, WI

He is at Robert’s. Prosper has done well and “calculates to stay . . . up the river.” Aunt Mary expects to go to York State to live. Luke’s clothes are falling apart. When he left De Pere he had his trunk checked for Oshkosh and hasn’t seen it since. Hasn’t had any luck selling bed bottoms and is pretty discouraged.
