Letter from Aswell Eller to Luke Eller, 21 January 1857
This is a letter from Aswell Eller to his father, Luke. Aswell apologizes for not writing a letter to his father sooner, explaining that the weather saw temperatures that were thirty degrees below zero and the river froze so no mail could be sent. He finishes his letter by saying he fears ending life a beggar so he must remain a Christian.
