Rice, Augusta H., 1831-1906

Description

Letter from Arthur Hopkins Rice, Meadow Woods, Oktibbeha County, Mississippi, to his aunt, Maria Walker. He writes about some of the horses having distemper, Mrs. Outlaw giving him a dog, killing snakes, and catching crayfish. He also mentions that his mother gave a horse to some soldiers who were on their way to Vicksburg, and that now she has nothing but mules to pull the carriage. He closes by asking his aunt to send him fish hooks, fishing line, a slate, and slate pencils. Arthur's mother, Augusta Hopkins Rice, includes a note about using lettuce juice as a substitute for opium and asks her sister to consult one of the local doctors about whether it works.
