1857 Abner J. Lowell Letter

1857 Abner J. Lowell Letter Item number: 230189476815

A May 25th 1857 letter from Abner J. Lowell to his cousin that mentions fishing voyage where "The Schooner was rolling rales (sic) under." It was written in small Point, and mentions a place called "Oak Hill". Abner says that the fishing voyage was rough for 48 hours. He also makes mention of the stationary being used and of the vignette which decorates it being a likeness of Col. J.C. Fremont.

I went and had a look in the 1860 United States Federal Census for Abner J. Lowell. I found a few people of intrest.
