Description

Letter, Albert Shaw to his mother, Mary Shaw. He is feeling much better, but his wife, Almerinda (''Rinnie''), is still in bad health. Their son, Clarence, likes to go out to the fields before dinner and ride home on a plow mule. He writes that the slaves are in good health, though Belle has been laid up for a day or two. Jane has spun nearly 40 yards. He tells her about the crops and livestock, and he expects the officer in Brookhaven to impress his corn for the army's use. He has heard no war news since the battle at Port Hudson, Louisiana (Admiral Farragut's attempt to run seven Union ships past the fort on March 14, 1863). 1863.
