Title Letter from Father to Son written in Brunswick in 1873
Object Name Letter
Scope & Content My Dear Little Boy,
I hear very bad news of you from your Mother. She says you do not obey her as you ought, that you will insist on swimming in the sun with both white & Negro Boys. Your story books can do you very little as you will know that disobedient children are made to suffer. How often must you be told about it. I can hardly make up mind to write to you for being so bad. I expected you would take care of your Mother and obey her in everything but it seems not and I am badly out of humor. I trust when you read this you will see how wicked you are and try to do better. We have had a great deal of rain and the weather is very cool. Must have had a hail storm some where. Hope it has done no damage to oats and corn. Tell your Mother I have got in the habit of dreaming of her and you all and I want to see her so much. Give my love to Mother, Sister, Aunt Avento and all and believe me.
Your Affections
Father
