Marcia [Abbot] ALS to [Charles Abbot], December 11, [18]98. Warren, [Ri.], page 14. From a collection of letters written to Charles Abbot from his family in Warren, Rhode Island. The majority of the letters are from his wife Marcia, but letters from his parents and friends are also part of the collection. The letters primarily describe the lives of Marcia and others living in Warren. What is best documented in this collection is the development and education of the Abbots' daughter Grace. Marcia writes about her involvement as a parent and Grace's activities, and sends her daughter's drawings or short notes with many of the letters. Abbot's service and the news about the United States Army are occasionally mentioned.
