Contributed by Maine Historical Society
The Rev. Oliver P. Tuckerman of Portland, a city missionary who helped the poor, wrote to Maria T. Hersey of Portland to thank her group, the R.F. Society, for a donation of $100.
The group of "young ladies" was formed in 1862 to help injured and ill soldiers during the Civil War. It apparently continued to operate after the war ended.
