Description

Letter, Albert Shaw to his mother, Mary Shaw, telling her that his health has not improved and that his wife, Almerinda (''Rinnie''), has the measles. He thinks that the measles were carried by sick soldiers from Corinth, Mississippi. Yankee gunboats destroyed part of a railroad bridge at Manchac Pass and killed 20-30 soldiers. More than 200 soldiers, including a company of artillery from Natchez and a company of infantry from Lawrence County, left Brookhaven the day before. He also writes about the state of his crops. 1862.
