James Hunt to father, Newburyport, 1845

Contributed by Maine Historical Society

James Hunt wrote to his father, Joseph I. Hunt of Bath, reporting that he had "settled down at last."

The younger Hunt went to Boston, Providence and New York, then back again before landing a job with Russell & Walker, an iron foundry in Newburyport, Massachusetts.

Hunt reported that he went to work at 5 a.m. and worked until 6 p.m. with an hour and a half for breakfast and dinner.

He wrote that he missed his father's smoked alewives. He also described being homesick.
