1866 Letters

May 20, 1866 letter to Sarah Keith from Pros Crawford

May 20, 1866 

To: Sarah Keith 

From: Lucius Prosper Crawford, Oshkosh, WI

Is upset with David and can’t understand his unwillingness to help Mother. Wants to promise to help her but his health is not good and he has only worked a month and has no money. Had another fire in Oshkosh — one-third of the business part of town burned. There was $100,000 in damages.
