Justice Frank J. and Virginia Williams
This handwritten letter, dated July 23, 1863, is written from Cul [last name unknown] to Phe [last name unknown] assuring them that New York is once again peaceful and has hopefully "outlived that reign of terror." Cul goes onto say that if the President will not speak of the Draft unless constitutionally necessary the peace might remain. The letter concludes with conversation about family matters.
