Frank and Virginia Williams
This handwritten letter, dated August 20, 1859 is from James Shields to T. [A.?} Cherry. The script is difficult to read but mentions that he is hardly ever at home, and compares Minnesota to Washington in some way. The paper is discolored in several places. This note was found tipped into volume one of Abraham Lincoln : A History by John G. Nicolay and John Hay.
