1875 Somerset Letter

This letter serves as a time capsule of sorts as it illustrates Somerset during the later part of the nineteenth century.  The letter appeared in the Thursday, June 10, 1875 edition of the Logan Hocking Sentienel.  I thought it worth posting because it illustrates what the Somerset of Nellie’s childhood and young adulthood was like.  When this letter was printed, she was six years old.
