A little About These Letters

All of the letters posted to this site will be eventually scanned so that the original is available for viewing. Some of the letters will be transcribed from the original so that reading will be easier. Transcribed letters and other documents will be as close to the original as possible. Some words are not legible. A question mark will be shown in this case. Punctuation has been inserted in some to shorten a sentence or to clarify. Where there is a transcribed letter, the original will be denoted by (O) behind the number. All letters will be numbered by date; year then month then day.
