William Haley Jr. letter from New York to his wife Miriam, 1864

Contributed by Sebago Historical Society

Haley writes about his trip from Maine to New York saying that they left Augusta at 12:30 taking a steamboat to Boston arriving the next morning at 7, then leaving at 5:30 that night, taking the train (“cars”) part way and then a boat.

He states, “We have had a good living all the way and there was not any seasick” and asks Miriam to “tell Hannah that I am a going out to Washington and have this business settled up.”
