Draft of a wedding annoucement of the Nelson's daughter, Bessie Moore (correspondence)

Description

Stuffed into the copybook turned math journal of the Nelson family along with other papers, these personal effects – including tailor slips, a draft of a wedding announcement, and the sad posting of the death of a child that would likely be sent to a local newspaper – provide a prism on life that is often lost in the sweeping statements of history textbooks. This draft of a wedding announcement likely took place shortly before the wedding on July 5, 1880.
