Description

Letter, James Ross in Clinton, Louisiana, to his son, Emmett Ross. He encourages his son to rest so that his leg injury will heal faster. He gives his consent for Emmett to marry Mollie (Mary Collins), even though he hasn't met his future daughter-in-law yet. He expresses his regret that he will have to miss the ceremony. He mentions that he has just returned from Bayou Sara and will have to travel again. He passes on greetings from his son's fellow soldiers. The mail service is unreliable. Professor Nathaniel Magruder is thinking about opening a school in Woodville. There have been Yankee raids in Clinton, but ''very few families were molested.'' 1864.
