Title:Asher M. Talcott letters

Three letters, dated 17 May 1861, 11 May 1862, and 27 September 1862, from Asher M. Talcott to his brother Lorenzo. The latter's address is not discernable on the fragment of envelope that evidently enclosed the last of the letters, however, it appears likely from the content of the letters that Asher Talcott had moved from his home to Iowa shortly before the first was written. The last was sent from Camp Herron, near Davenport, Iowa, after Asher Talcott had enlisted in the Union Army. All three letters are written on stationery bearing patriotic illustrations.
