Letter to Francis Pratt from family, 1865

Contributed by Maine Historical Society

Albert Pratt started a letter to his brother Francis Cash Pratt (1842-1911) in Saint Jean Port Jolli, Canada. Their mother, Almira Pratt, and sister, S. A. Handly, also wrote sections on the letter.

Albert Pratt discusses the draft, Mrs. Pratt writes about her concern for her son's health, and S.A. Handly expresses hope for peace and that her brother will be able to return to Maine (Wilton) soon.
