Letter from Ann King to William King, 1820 / Maine Historical Society

Ann Nesbeth King was born Ann Nesbeth Frazier in Boston in 1785 and died in Portland in 1859.

She married William King (1768-1852) a Massachusetts Senator and the first governor of Maine from 1820-1821. In this letter from Ann to her husband, she expressed her frustration that King has not returned home, because Maine was not admitted to the Union as quickly as they had expected.
