Description
 
A rather poetic letter written by Elise H Alber after her arrival in Cleveland. It appears that Elise was rather homesick after she and her brother moved to Ohio. The letter begins on a rather despondent note:  "Sealed alone in my chamber and feeling somewhat sad, I am about to write to you to see if it will not drive away the blues."  Shortly there after it picks up, describing a snow storm they recently had and the sleigh rides that resulted from the storm. The letter continues on to describe an Episcopal wedding she and her brother were invited to. While the letter is address to a Mary E Poor of Piermont, NH, Elise often refers to her as Lissie in the letter.  Measures 8 1/2" x 6 3/4" (folded sheet) . Minor toning and soiling due to age.
