James M. Augustus papers

About the Digital Collection

Personal letters from sons James M. and S.J. Augustus to their mother (or mothers). There is no evidence as to whether or not they were brothers. James speaks in 1864 of his month-old daughter and of how much they paid a maid for three weeks of work.
