Asa Farwell Papers, 1866-1879
The papers of Reverend Asa Farwell include correspondence and two unidentified tintypes. The four 1866 letters to Mary Ann (Sexton) Farwell, his wife, are from Bentonsport and Dubuque, Iowa; Albion, New York (while travelling); and Middlebury, Vermont. Topics discussed include church matters, travel, and family (11 pages). The collection also includes two 1879 letters from son Ed Farwell in Milton, Nebraska. He appears to be a young man or teenager at the time of the writing and discussing loneliness, chores, and someone named George grinding corn.
