Mary Brady papers

About the Digital Collection

Letters to Mary Brady from her sons, one of whom was named Moses H. Brady, who had migrated to or traveled in Louisiana, Texas, and Mexico. An 1850 letter from Moses Brady, written from Lafayette, La., describes wanderings in Mexico and mentions his bad health until he "discharged a tape worm about two hundred feet long." Two letters fall in the Confederate period.
