From a collection of correspondence representing three generations of the Metcalf family. Since the family is spread out in Maine, New Hampshire, and Ohio, discussion in the letters is primarily focused on catching up with family and friend news: births, deaths, marriages, and illnesses. The weather features prominently, as does Christian beliefs and activities, travel and war experiences. See finding aid for more information.
