Title

Letter to a Brother and Sister about Local Family News in Oregon

Description

Letter addressed to a brother and sister of the Rees family back in Ohio. The letter is from their brother Willard Hall Rees who has recently moved to Butteville Oregon from Ohio. Willard apologizes for not writing sooner, but is healthy and in Oregon. There are many people Willard knows in Butteville and fills in his family in Ohio about the happenings of Butteville. Many families are starting to expand, along with being struck with the sadness of death. Willard received a letter from his father saying that one of his siblings was planning a trip to Oregon and that he wished to know more information on this topic. Willard ensures his siblings that to get to Oregon it is not too expensive giving them exact prices and a range of days they will be traveling. This is one item from the Rees Family Correspondence Collection, which includes many letters between family members in Oregon and Ohio.
