Description

Letter, Albert Shaw to his mother, Mary Shaw, telling her that his wife, Almerinda (''Rinnie''), is very ill with ''billious cholic.'' Their son, Clarence, has recovered from his toothache. He mentions making shoes for the negroes. There was a battle at Coffeeville, Mississippi, but he doesn't know the result (the battle, which took place on December 5, was a Confederate victory). Major Clark is camped at Brookhaven with two companies of cavalry. Shaw sent a wagon to the salt mine, but he has had no word of it since. 1862.
