James L. Hunt letter on wintry Newburyport, 1846

Contributed by Maine Historical Society

Writing from Newburyport, Massachusetts, where he had worked since July 1845, James L. Hunt told his parents in Bath that nothing was happening in the town on a January afternoon because of the heavy, deep snow.

Hunt worked in a foundry and wrote to his parents, Joseph and Roxanna Hunt, about his job, about missing family and friends in Bath, and about his ambitions.
