Ether Shepley to son G. F. Shepley, St. Louis, 1869
Contributed by Maine Historical Society
Ether Shepley, a retired judge, wrote to his son George F. Shepley of Portland about his decision to live with another son, Leonard, upon the elder Shepley's return to Portland.
Ether Shepley's wife, Anne Foster Shepley, had died about a year previous. Shepley wrote that Leonard and his family felt slighted because the elder Shepley had never lived with them and jealous apparently because George and his family were more successful.
He also wrote about other family and political matters.
